Interview : With Poppy!

Sunday September 22nd 2019

Hey guys, hope your all having a great day. It’s Sunday which means new blog post. Yayyy. Today is a different type of blog because it is my first “interview style” blog. For a while I have been thinking of doing this type of post as I want to share people stories and achievements.  I’ve been really excited to post this…it’s with Poppy ! Poppy has a Instagram and a YouTube channel called Poppy Mayy . She is a wheelchair user but doesn’t let anything stop her so I asked her around 6 questions and here they are!

Introduce yourself (any hobbies?)

Hiya there my name is Poppy and I absolutely love photography 😊.

If your okay with it ,can you explain the story of your disability?

In 2018 I ended up becoming paralysed from the waist down and no sensation in my elbows down to my fingertips due to a condition called Functional Neurological Disorder.

Do people treat you differently in a wheelchair ? 

Since becoming a wheelchair user I have found that people treat me extra kindly and some believe that I need help for everything which is not the case.

How did you deal with the transition of having to use a wheelchair ? – what support did you get ?

I never really got used to a wheelchair until 6 months later when I started posting photos of me and wheelchair on Instagram.

Why did you start your Instagram?

I started Instagram 2 years ago and I was just posting my photography then October last year I accepted my difference and started posting loads more photos of me.

Why did you start your YouTube ?

I started YouTube because I love to create videos and film vlogs to entertain people and document my life in videos.

Hope you enjoyed that blog! I am hoping to do more of this style. Thank you Poppy.
