Listen to Shannon's Gears, Gadgets and Gizmos

Shannon was left paralysed from the waist down after a diving accident when she was 14 years old and first received international media attention a few years after her injury when she won the first ever search for a disabled model.

She has since campaigned for the better representation of disability in the media for 20 years and has gone some way to improving that, appearing in a number of successful dramas for the BBC and Channel 4 as well as being the first disabled model to feature in a high profile advertising campaign for the British store Debenhams.
