The current members of the Youth Support Team are:
Hi my name is Emma, I am a Little Person with Achondroplasia. I am the only person with dwarfism in my family. I am 22 years old and currently work in retail. I also have a real passion for dressmaking and sewing with the dream one day of making and designing clothes for Little People.
I have been a member of DSAuk since I was 5 years old. When LPUK was formed by Sam I jumped at the chance to attend and be apart of it and I have never looked back since.
My role within the committee is organising events and socials for our youth members.
I am really pleased to be part of the LPUK Committee and look forward to all the great things we have planned for the future.
Hello my name is Simeon Dyer and I was born with Achondroplasia. I'm a 22 years old and I have just completed my study of Performing Arts at University. Like most other dwarfs I am the only dwarf in my family.
I joined LPUK 5 years ago and before that I hadn't really met any other dwarfs. The charity has helped me in so many different ways from finding out more about my condition to making life long friends.
The reason I wanted to join the charity's committee was to give something back to the charity after it has given me so much.
