It is not often that we feel privileged to remove someone’s earwax, however, we have come across someone that special. We would like to introduce you to Miss Jade McGoldrick, that’s perhaps not a name you know, but you should. We at Clements Wax removing service take care of Jade’s ears. Jade is an effervescent, bright sixteen year old, and in conversation with her we have discovered a remarkable young lady.
Jade was born with spina bifida; however, she has in no way allowed it to hinder either her drive or ambition. She is presently starting 5th year at Hamilton Grammar doing Admin, Modern studies and Music with a link course at New Lanarkshire College doing Travel and leisure. She has also played violin for 6 years with the South Lanarkshire Orchestral Society and enjoys the 2166 Air Training Cadets, However, she felt that she could take an extra challenge on!
Two years ago, Jade took up playing wheelchair tennis; she quickly proved her prowess and qualified for Scottish Girl’s Wheel Chair Tennis team, which is to compete in the Scottish Disability Sports School Games in Loughborough in September (www.2016schoolgames.com). Jade trains in Scotstoun Sports Campus with GB coach Kevin Simpson, and has her next goal firmly fixed on Team G.B. for the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020.
The opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Olympic gold medal heroes Adam Peaty, Owain Doull, Elinor Barker, Lily Owsley and Georgie Twigg as well as other Rio heroes such as Dina Asher-Smith, Sophie Hitchon, Amy Tinkler and Nile Wilson.
We wish the bright, wonderful young girl every success in the September Games and we have no doubt that her goal to compete for Team G.B. will be achieved. She possesses a determination and strength of character that puts many of us to shame.
Jade is a member of the South Lanarkshire Self Direct Support Network www.selfdirectnetwork.org.uk which allows Jade flexibility to design or personalize her own support. She can employ her own personal carer, helping with care, socializing and respite.
Because of her youth and the fact that she is living at home, the services to Jade are restricted at present. However, as she grows the adult support services will increase, allowing her independence. We don’t think there is anything that will stop Jade and we genuinely feel privileged to have met her.
