Beth’s courage, keen sense of humour and incomparable love of life inspires us every week.
Beth was born with cerebral palsy and is one of With One Voice Melbourne’s original participants.
Peter: “Beth, why do you come to choir?”
Beth: “Freedom, independence and a sense of belonging. Because I feel like I don’t belong anywhere else. I do belong here. At choir no one sees my wheelchair. They see me, as a person.”
In 2014, Beth achieved two lifelong dreams: standing up for the first time, which she did at a choir rehearsal, and landing her first job. The job was at the Royal Melbourne Show, thanks to SKILLED.
“Beth welcomed show-goers with her incomparable enthusiasm and loved the job so much she extended her working hours,” said Delphine Cassidy from SKILLED.
“Both show-goers and co-workers were inspired by Beth’s passion for life and friendliness.”
