Peter Waters


I was born in Australia in 1969. I went to Hadfield High School. I was born with cerebral palsy which is a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone or posture.

I have a Bachelor of Arts and Community Development. Having a disability does not stop me from doing anything I want to do. Five years ago, I rode a wheelchair from Sydney to Melbourne, it took me 14 days. I raised $30,000 for kids with disabilities

I want to help people to understand disability. I educate able bodied people to better understand people who have disabilities. Because of Cerebral palsy I strive to live an independent life and I want others who have disabilities to know they can still have an independent life.
