About

From a professional photo shoot. I'm resting my hands on the chair back I'm lent against, looking down. I'm wearing a black dress with a silver sequin skirt, and I purple cardigan.

My real name is Emma, and I was not named after Baby Spice despite being born in 1996. I usually go by the nickname “Mini”, because Emma is a common name, and the only obvious distinguishing feature between me and other Emma’s is the wheelchair; not many people are comfortable saying “Wheelie Emma” even though I don’t mind it too much.

My blog is biographical, which I hope to keep light-hearted and slightly comedic, but which I also hope will allow readers to develop an empathy for those with a disability, and particularly wheelchair users.
