Nikos Wallingford visited the FULLer Cup in Winchester and interviews the founder, Laura Fuller. He used his iPad with the app ‘TouchChat’ to ask his questions. Having a disability doesn’t have to stop you from pursuing your dreams. Nikos love food and wanted to interview an owner of a cafe or restaurant.

Brio Integrated Theatre offers an internship program for young adults and teens living with a disability.
