  • About Me | Layne Dixon

    About me From a young age, my parents and I have struggled to find answers about my CP and other disability. Just before the 2016 Paralympic Games, I signed up to become a para-athlete. With the support from TADWA, Athletics West and Rebound WA my dreams become a reality over time. In 2017 I broke my first Australian record in shot put as a F33 Under 20 seated thrower. from there, I started to break and continue to break Under 20 AUS records in the shot put, discus and javelin. Alongside this journey, I’ve never really fitted in at school either. Not knowing I had ongoing mental health problems, I struggled to keep in touch and stay friends with my peers both inside and out of school. My anger and frustration were drawn into throwing and writing. To throw my problems away when I’m strapped down to the chair and throw, as well as bring up some of the common issues that people with disabilities (PwD) face day in and day out. Blog We only see the good parts on social media but is this authentic. That’s the big question here, and therefore I want to improve society. It has been so difficult for my parents to find answers to my disability and life. overtime, social media has become an escape for me, where I can share my journey through life, both the good and the negative sides of having a disability. through sharing my experience online, I have had to opportunity to meet people and get to know so many PwD online. Directory I’ve always had trouble finding the right location to suit my needs. At times I don’t know where to go, or even what to do with my friends and with my support workers. That’s why I’ve started a free and public directory that highlights the importance of accessible and disability-friendly venues. Cafés, museums, theatre venues, you name it! We do live in an inaccessible world, not just for people that use wheelchairs, but for many, many more people with conditions, illnesses, ongoing injuries as well as disabilities. To improve the accessibility for people with disabilities I interview business owners across Perth.
