Life Isn't Fair
Living life with a physical disability from birth means a hard road ahead for anyone, but Ian McDonald has taken it all in his stride and through tough times and good, he has led what some people would describe as a relatively normal yet in some respects, extraordinary life despite his disability.
This has seen him treated well by his family and friends, but who survived his school years being mercilessly bullied by other children. As his life has gone on, he's come up against discrimination in the workplace, discrimination by potential and actual employers, been sacked from his "job of a lifetime" for being too good at it and through all this has had some unbelievable successes along the way.
Ian's life is a rich tapestry of good and bad, but all through it we can see his ability to keep a smile on his face and shrug off the bad times shines through. With a wide variety on his resume.
