Joseph Bird: Challenging Stereotypes Leave You Breathless with Sophie Grace Holmes

    • Fitness

Joseph Bird is a disability advocate, spreading positivity on disability while also challenges stereotypes. He was born 12 weeks premature and suffered a brain haemorrhage at four days old resulting in him having Cerebral Palsy. But Joseph's drive and determination is second to none and he has taught himself to walk, run and jump, he pushes himself in the gym and has completely transformed his body to tackle one of his biggest fears - he is also sponsored by My Protein.




In our chat we discuss topics ranging from his mindset, his routines and his acceptance of his disability, and we discuss a subject he’s never told anyone about: a strong resentment he felt in his teens and how he overcame it. We also touch on his support network, his biggest inspiration, his dating, goals and how he managed to keep moving forward during lockdown.




Joseph is an incredible human being, such a pleasure to talk to and he shared his story in such a vulnerable and honest way, leaving me feeling so inspired and motivated. I hope this episode helps to give you the confidence to really push for the goals that scare you and the belief that you really can succeed when the odds are against you.




Joseph loves to connect with people while sharing his journey so if you’d love to chat to him you can contact him through Instagram @CPTruths.
