I get up again ... Bernadette Rigney & Terry-Ann Adams

Bernadette Rigney, director at fAbility, a company which shares innovative ideas and technology to assist and improve the lifestyles of persons with physical disabilities, is adamant:  “With all eyes on us, we may as well keep it fabulous!”


Keitu, Bernadette ("iStart2 do!"), Pierre and Terry-Ann


And fabulous they are indeed. Bernadette and Terry-Ann Adams chatted to us about  how we define a person with a disability, how far we've come in South Africa on Disability Rights and share their ideas around the issues of "Reasonable Accommodation" and "Universal Design". Persons with disabilities face a myriad of challenges but Terry-Ann feels strongly: "I don't want people to feel sorry for me. Once you are okay with who YOU are, you are okay with other people." Words of wisdom from a woman who have faced unspeakable discrimination against her person: "I get up again and I want you to smile."

To share the "fabulosity" of Terry-Ann and Bernadette, to get the latest Green Times News and hear some poetry from Natalia Molebatsi, just click play to listen to the show.
