Talia McDowell is 24 years old and lives in Northern Ireland. She studied dance and drama in Cheltenham for 2 years and has just finished an Inclusive Dance training course in Cork. The course is a collaboration between University College Cork and partners and is the first of its kind in Ireland. Looking forward, as a seated powerchair dancer, Talia would like to become self-employed as a dance facilitator and split her time between dance and art. Painting is a passion which she discovered during the Coronavirus pandemic and something which she would love to progress.
