"I have never wanted to be anyone else, I am far too happy being me"

Nick Sayers presNick Sayers, Ambassador shared what equality and diversity mean to him, at our 2018 conference, with his own poem that he performed in the morning plenary.

"I am an Ambassador, a worker and a volunteer. Being an Ambassador means I sometimes give talks with Alex who is the boss of Shared Lives Plus. Being an Ambassador and being a boss are different jobs but they are both important. I am happy to be different from Alex. We are different but we are equal. He is Alex and I am me. And this is my poem about equality.

I have never wanted to be anyone else

I am far too happy being me

All the things I can do.

If someone says to me

“ You can’t go there Nick”

I just reply

“Then help me find a way”

I can

because I want to

and they do

and I can be

That’s Equality for me."
