What you'll do
Although I've now found a way (and always learning) to do everything, I sometimes need a little help. I want to share with you all of the prosthetic limbs that I use to successfully complete every task. Some of the things l'll show you I have had to make myself because you can't buy it off the shelf. Although I'm missing my left arm, I spent 2 years at college and am a qualified 'Carpenter and Joiner'. I challenge you to try and find another Paralympic Carpenter! My experiences are really inclusive and as an LGBT ambassador I warmly welcome anybody to my online experiences! Come prepared with questions and curiosity and lots of ideas of what I could use the adaptations for that I show you, and a creative mind for what I'm missing in my collection of prosthetic limbs so you too can overcome adversity. You won't offend me; so this is your opportunity to ask me any questions about being born and growing up missing my left arm, and the adaptations that I've used throughout my life from a Paralympic Athlete to a Woodworker. I look forward to seeing you soon! My experiences are unique every-time however brief timings: (Dependant upon group size) 5mins - Introduction 10mins - Ice Breaker 10mins - My story 10mins - Show and tell 5mins - Demonstration on my work bench 5mins - Show and tell 10mins - Creative thinking 5mins - Q&A

I was born with no left forearm but was brought up to believe there was no such word as can't. Through lots of hard work and passion about sport, I went on to represent Great Britain at the highest level for 15years. David is a 2 x Paralympian in Swimming & Triathlon, World & European Medallist, British Champion and was TeamGB's Youngest Athlete at the Athens 2004 Paralympics and Top 10 Finisher in the Rio de Janerio 2016 Paralympic Games. Along side this David is an LGBT Ambassador My parents used to watch me when I was a little boy learning to do simple tasks and let me discover for myself a way to do things. They would only ever intervene if I was really struggling, but they never did anything for me and taught me to be resilient, determined and very independent. I'm so thankful to my family for shaping me into the person I am today
