Jeantique Hommel: Paraclimbing

“I’m Jeantique (she/her), a paraclimber studying Occupational Therapy at LSBU. My degree is all about supporting people to do the things they want and need to do to have a meaningful life, and I’m also passionate about disability advocacy and education. I run a charity for disabled climbers voluntarily in my own time, and as a para athlete my chosen degree is especially important to me! Thanks to LSBU, being a sports scholar means not having to worry about the additional costs of comps and training whilst I’m already on a stressful course, and having that support and understand of the uni system around me.”
