Disability advocate, Leesa Flynn, has become the first wheelchair user to receive a Master of Education degree from Maynooth University. She was among more than 900 graduates who received their degrees and diplomas at the November conferring ceremony.

Leesa, who was born with spina bifida and uses a wheelchair and walking frame, received her Professional Master of Education (Primary) to add to her primary degree in English and History from MU.

The disability advocate says that she always wanted to become a primary school teacher but her journey was not without its challenges. 

We wish Leesa all the best in her teaching career.
