Beth

BethBeth’s courage, keen sense of humour and incomparable love of life inspires us every week.

Beth was born with cerebral palsy and is one of With One Voice Melbourne’s original participants.

Peter: “Beth, why do you come to choir?”

Beth: “Freedom, independence and a sense of belonging. Because I feel like I don’t belong anywhere else. I do belong here. At choir no one sees my wheelchair. They see me, as a person.”

In 2014, Beth achieved two lifelong dreams: standing up for the first time, which she did at a choir rehearsal, and landing her first job. The job was at the Royal Melbourne Show, thanks to SKILLED.

“Beth welcomed show-goers with her incomparable enthusiasm and loved the job so much she extended her working hours,” said Delphine Cassidy from SKILLED.

“Both show-goers and co-workers were inspired by Beth’s passion for life and friendliness.”
