Hannah Coleman is a ceramic artist, student, Girl Guide, a young carer, a member of the Youth Advisory Council of the ACT, and disability advocate.
Three years ago, Hannah Coleman was diagnosed with severe neurological Lyme Disease and has been in a wheelchair for the past 2 years. She doesn’t see herself as a disabled person, but a regular person with a disability. In this talk from TEDxCanberra 2012, Hannah tells her story in her own words, urging us all to live our own lives to the fullest.
Hannah Coleman suffers from Lyme Disease and has spent most of her life being very ill, including being close to death several times. But that doesn’t stop her from living a fulfilled, complete life, including her being one of the biggest TED fans ever and a big supporter of TEDxCanberra.
Hannah is also the daughter of TEDxCanberra 2011 presenter, Dr. Stephen Coleman. It’s a bit of a TEDxCanberra dynasty.
