All of us have hobbies and activities we are excited to get back to when government guidelines allow.

Here are five things Fatima is most looking forward to:

  1. Going to Costa Coffee shops.
  2. Going bowling.
  3. Going baking at the Ingestre Community Centre.
  4. Going to the South Bank.
  5. Going to ask the gym about yoga.

What are yours?

My name is Fatima Begum My background is that I’m from Bangladesh 🇧🇩 but originally I was born in the United Kingdom. Like millions of other people, I learned how to use Zoom last year so I could communicate with people during the lockdowns. Though I was happy that I’d learned about it, I was concerned that some other Disabled people were not benefitting from Zoom either because they didn’t have the right equipment or because they weren’t being shown how to use it. I realised that without video-chats, many Disabled people would be feeling lonely, especially during the lockdowns. So I decided to use the skills and confidence I gained on a CDA leadership programme to do what I could to change this.  Since learning about Zoom during the pandemic I now appreciate how important it is to be connected to people online. After taking part in community journalism training with Camden Disabled Voices I have learned how to record my own voice which is a new skill for me. I’m happy to share my stories on the website and it gives other people the chance to read about me and my thoughts.
