Never underestimate people with disability. Wesley (Wes) Greer talks to Michael McEwan of Able Radio about his life from school through the highs and lows of breaking into performing arts. Currently Wes is working in a voluntary post at Common Knowledge UK (CKUK). He is also a member of East Kilbride Rep Theatre where he recently played the dormouse in their pantomime adaptation of Alice In Wonderland. This was particularly intriguing as Wes is 6ft 5 inches tall! Wes has steadfastly refused to let his learning disability limit his ambitions and he explains how his self confidence increased through attending college and being a Host City Volunteer at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014. Through CKUK he was introduced to Sunny G 103 community radio where he now hosts his own show. His message is to the world is 'never underestimate people with disability' - and to people with a disability 'believe you can achieve what you want'.
