Achieve Your Dreams Despite Your Disability


On Thursday the 8th of November Red Szell came in to talk to us about achieving your dreams even when you’re disabled. He told us the story of when he climbed a rock face called The Old Man of Hoy even though he was blind. The Old Man of Hoy is a sea stack in Scotland surrounded by the sea. He told us to be resilient and never give up our dreams. I really liked hearing about his dangerous climb around ‘The Coffin’ – the hardest part of the climb. It was tricky for him to find holds for his hands, and one time he felt himself slipping and found a tiny hold only just in time. He inspired us to start doing rock climbing – or any other activity we want! – but to never give up.
