The Four Wheeled Wonder Woman - Accessibility Review
I looked up to see my Mum filming me from the viewing area. The look on her face will never ever leave me as long as I live. She looked so proud of me and had the biggest smile on her face. I don’t think she could quite believe that I was actually doing the I-Fly. I couldn’t believe it either.
