Disabilities manifest themselves in many shapes and sizes, and it’s not often we’re exposed to those hidden to the eye. Australian Paralympic Athlete Erin Cleaver is actively using her voice to speak openly about the struggles she’s faced having been diagnosed with cerebral palsy from a young age and what it’s like living with a hidden disability.
