Being Me

29 x 29 - 9 brand new episodes! HD
Broadcaster:  TVNZ

This uplifting series features intimate character driven stories, which tell incredible tales of confidence and positivity in the face of adversity.

 

Meet people with a wide variety of disabilities and take a walk in their shoes: from sassy Gigi with Down Syndrome who dreams of walking the catwalk, to Freedom who had both eyes removed by the age of five who now hunts and cooks living on a farm. There's Claire who suffered a spinal injury that put her in a wheelchair before achieving her dream of completing a PhD, and Sam, who despite living with skeletal dysplasia in a 7-year-old's body, made it to the big screen in Hollywood blockbuster film, The Greatest Showman.

 

Being Me shows a side of disability rarely covered in the media: fun-loving people living fulfilling and dynamic lives. Despite serious obstacles, all of our subjects have risen to take on the world and conquer their dreams with a bold heart. Challenge your perceptions by seeing the world through another's eyes.
