The 30-year-old mother continuously writes for her blog to focus at parents with a chronical diseases and an impairment. On REHACARE.com she tell us who is her tower of strength and whose strange way of singing makes her happy.
Ju Wheelymum: I have a 2-year-old son. Every day I have to laugh heartily. For example: today, he sang a song with full emotions. I didn’t understand a word. But he carries the tune greatly.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Ju Wheelymum: I always wanted to paraglide. But somehow I always postponed it. Maybe because I was afraid of heights. Meanwhile I can’t paraglide anymore, because of the strong vibrations during start and landing.
Which person has influenced you most?
Ju Wheelymum: My best friend. Because she is always at my side – like a tower of strength. She always knows what is right or wrong and how you have to react. So much empathy.
You have the chance to become the German Federal Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Ju Wheelymum: Very trivial: lower curbsides. Afterwards, I would like to create a contact-point for people with disabilities, where they can go with questions, worries, hardships and applications. From here, everything could be transferred to the appropriate department.
