“My biggest fear when applying for graduate roles was that my disability would mean I’d be phased out or not considered to be up to standard. It’s an incredibly difficult position to be in.

And, how can I be sure my disability doesn’t affect my ability to do my job, especially once I’ve been hired and I’m in the working environment for real?”
