How Nathan created a social media platform for people with disabilities from his dining room table

Updated: Oct 12, 2022


When Nathan Johnston was younger, people told him he was "dreaming" when he talked about starting his own business.

Key points:

  • Nathan Johnston created a fully accessible social media platform from his dining room table

  • The platform will be launched today, to mark International Day of People with Disability

  • Australia's Disability Strategy will include tools to encourage more employers to hire people with disability.

The 27-year-old lives with cerebral palsy, uses a wheelchair and cannot read or write.

"All those hurtful things that got said to me by several different people, all of that's driven me to where I'm at right now," Mr Johnston said. "It made me a bit angry — but it made me more determined."
