Our Stories

We all have our own stories – unique and unforgettable... although as we are all humans, we have a lot in common. Sometimes to tell your story means to help other people who might experience similar problems.

Well, we tell you our stories. And you could tell us your story!

My name is David Ledner and I am a member of MPEG.

I am also a member of People First Scotland, an organisation for People with Learning Difficulties.

On 27 February 2015, I took part in the Human Library at Lasswade Library which was arranged through MPEG.

I might also like to state that most people who find themselves with no health insurance are typically students, self-employed and people who are not working.

My name is Fiona Wallace, I am a 50 year old resident in Mayfield, Dalkeith.

For the last 25 years+ I have been heavily involved in the rights of people with learning difficulties through People First, a user led collective advocacy organisation based throughout Scotland.

I am very passionate about advocating for people with learning difficulties to have the same lives as everyone else.

A small thing once happened at school
That brought up a question for me,
And somehow it brought me to see 
The price that I pay to be cool.

My name is Nila Joshi and I came to Scotland in 1976 as a young bride. Coming from a Hindu cultural and religious background, it was very difficult for me to adjust in a new environment (especially the Scottish weather!). However I quickly adjusted and made Scotland my home.

When I came to Scotland, I brought lots of wealth with me such as Language, Religion, Culture, Traditions, belief, colors and Customs.
