Janet …… As a deaf person I fight with depression and the loneliness it brings everyday, If it was not for my dancing family and the escape movement and dance brings from my internal fears and thoughts I don’t know how I would cope.

When I first became deaf it was my dance coach, mentor, and special friend Eric Lashbrooke who gilded me and encouraged me to continue in my quest to become a fellow of the UKA and it is the memories of his words that help me to be the person I am.

I hope that through my work I can be a mentor and friend to many who need one just like he was to me when I needed one xxx JAN
