Stella Young: I’m Not Your Inspiration, Thank You Very Much

Earlier tonight, I attended a meeting of the Cork Centre for Independent Living Peer Forum in the Maldron Hotel on John Redmond Street.

Event organiser and Cork CIL Community Employment Supervisor Nicola Meacle was MC for the evening. She screened four short films on the theme of “A Visual Exploration of Disability and Independent Living” and gave a brief introduction to each one. Nicola prefaced I’m Not Your Inspiration, Thank You Very Much (a talk given by Stella Young at TEDxSydney in April, 2014) by breaking the sad news that Stella had recently passed away.
