Shanequa: Your videos are amazing. I started watching them and then I'm just scrolling, scrolling, scrolling ...
Hannah, with the help of your honesty about cerebral palsy, how do you think it'll change how people see it?
Hannah: Hopefully, people will see that I have cerebral palsy, but cerebral palsy does not have me. By doing our TikToks, we hope that inclusion will become a part of everyday life.
Lucy: How does a blind girl get around parked cars on the pavement?
Shanequa: Why did you even start making TikTok videos?
Lucy: I saw that Learn on TikTok was actually trending and I thought, right, I'm going to show the world that being blind is really cool and I'm going to tell everyone what I do in my day-to-day that makes the world really accessible to me.
Becky: I think the aim was to just have fun, but then as we grew bigger we realised there was a need for people to see how disabilities are in society. So I think we just then did it to raise awareness.
Shanequa: I can imagine, like, loads of people have questions as well.
Lucy: Yeah, oh my gosh, loads of questions. Um, how do you pick up your guide dog's poop? Which is, you know, funny. I did show that one. But the response has been so amazing. Having a disability can be really positive and I am so disability confident and I think everyone else should be. And those are the comments that I do receive, it's amazing.
