My Name is Mathilda and I am an Amputee

My Story

Hi! My name is Mathilda. I was born an amputee as a result of Amniotic Band Syndrome, something only 30% of babies with the syndrome survive. I was also born with clubfoot, so as a baby and a toddler, I underwent many corrective surgeries on both legs, as well as to repair my cleft palate. I was lucky to grow up traveling around the world, with very few problems to do with my disability. However, in September 2021 I undertook a further amputation surgery as a result of complications to my limb and in order to receive better mobility long-term (so it’s really a win). I also recently received hearing aids due to a cognitive hearing loss in both ears, however I have been inspired by this to learn BSL!

Where I am now

While I am still recovering, I hope to try out seated/adaptive archery and climbing, as they were both things that were a huge part of my childhood and I want to prove to myself that I can do anything just as I used to. I’m now a proud student of St Andrews University in Scotland, and I am represented by Zebedee talent agency, hoping to inspire others and encourage people to learn about disability and learning to accept themselves for the wonderful humans they are.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
