"People with disabilities are not extraordinary people
rather ordinary people with extraordinary determination."
"Anything Is Possible"
Judith Geppert has cerebral palsy. She does not allow these two words, or indeed the condition itself, to prevent her from enjoying life to the fullest. Whilst having little control over her movements, she uses a motorised wheelchair and wears a 'headpointer' which enables her to use a computer and type 19 words per minute using her head.
Judith, is an International Typewriter Artist and over the years she has experienced the thrill of tandem skydiving, hotair ballooning, climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and co-piloting a Ferrari at 200 kilometres per hour. She also had the honour of being a Torchbearer for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sydney. Since the 1970's, her work with local and state governments has contributed substantially to policies benefiting children and adults with disabilities.
