Cherylee Houston: My Perception Of Disability


Cherylee Houston, who plays Izzy Armstrong in Coronation Street, has written a blog post for the Huffington Post called My Perception Of Disability.

Cherylee supports the disability charity Scope.

She writes a powerful piece and she says: "I am not a disabled person, I am Cherylee, actress, writer, vegetarian, gardener, lover of adventures, likes to make things, glue things, have daft impulses, learn lessons too late - that’s who I am. I am not ‘disabled’ in the perception of the term. And yet disability has soaked itself into so many areas of my life and by proxy those around me.

"Disability is never seen as a positive. But it can be. I feel it myself and see it in others - the wisdom, the knowledge, the processing, the understanding it brings. It teaches you to face difficult choices alongside depth of patience, to cherish the moments. The acceptance you have to learn or perpetually rally against.
