Bryony Goes Bananas With Bedtime Stories


I am so excited to announce that I am now starting a whole new series on my YouTube Channel reading stories for children. I have decided to call it Bryony Goes Bananas With Bedtime Stories

As some of you may know I grew up with books and they are still a massive part of my life now.

This series will be available on my defeatingdisability YouTube Channel from tomorrow!

I came up with the idea to create this as over the past few months I have spoken to children and parents about how they can make the reading experience better for their children as they need more help with reading due to their disabilities. Many Parents told me that their kids wanted to read stories just like their friends could but they found this really hard and found it embarrassing to tell friends their parents still have to read for them.

So this is when I came up with the idea to create Bryony Goes Bananas With Bedtime Stories. In each video I will be reading a Children’s storybook with pictures so that you can follow along to and we can read together. In each video their will also be main words that come up to help children to communicate and learn words.

I am so excited to be starting this and to be growing into new areas to help children discover the enjoy that books give.

The books I will be reading may also be good to watch and listen if you are learning English too as an example.

My first ever episode for this series on my YouTube Channel will be up before 6pm tomorrow. The first book to kick off this amazing series is one of my all time favourites, The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.

If you’ve got the book I’d love for you to read along with me.

You can subscribe to my YouTube Channel here to be the first to get notifications when the first book of the series is posted along with any other videos I may post:

Hopefully see you tomorrow!

And please let me know if you have any book requests

Best Wishes

Bryony 💜

Just A Little Life Update…


So you might have noticed that I haven’t been blogging as much as I used to or as much as I would like to. This is just a short post telling you what I’m up to and where I have been.

This September I started back at college but instead of doing an adult learning course like I did last year. I am now a full time student doing Performing Arts Level 2. I am loving it! We recently did our first production called First Draft were we performed different short plays, dances and songs. We are now rehearsing for our Immersive Theatre Christmas Production Bah Humbug! I have been on quite a journey to be accepted onto a course I really wanted and love to do and now I’m finally there and doing what I love!

I am also currently doing workshops with Resource Productions to write, create, shoot and edit our own shot films. The project I am working on with fellow cast and crew members will be shown at Pinewood Studios.

I am now the volunteer blogger for the inclusive theatre company The Theatre Shed. Check out The Theatre Shed Blog here:

I am still doing hair and makeup modelling but would love to try new things to develop my portfolio. In the future I would love to be an actor and a model with an agent.

I am still going to one of my most favourite places in the world the stables. I have now moved class were I am learning all about the detail. I am so excited to see what the future holds!

I am thinking about writing more content on my blog for example reviews as well as beauty and fashion. I am also thinking about having more themes for my Instagram story for example Mental Health Monday’s.

I can’t wait to see what the future holds and have you all come on this journey with me. I’ve got some exciting things happening soon and can’t wait to share it all with you my Defeating Disability Family

All my love

Bryony 💜
