Hannah Diviney

Hannah is the co-Founder of Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s Krazy Kosci Klimb, a challenge empowering young people living with cerebral palsy or other disability to walk the summit track from Charlotte Pass to the top of Mount Kosciuszko.

She is also the driving force behind a petition demanding Disney create a princess with a disability so their characters more fully represent the community, giving children with a disability the chance to see their lives reflected and providing a powerful character to increase understanding from non-disabled children. You can sign the petition here.

In addition to her campaign work, Hannah is a full-time university student in her last year of a Bachelor of Arts & International Studies at the University of Wollongong.

She is deeply passionate about improving the visibility of people with disabilities in all arenas and empowering people to look beyond their perceptions around what success for a disabled person should look like. Through her campaigning she strives to create space for disabled people to imagine and work towards their own definition of a rich full life, and one day hopes to be in a position where she can provide tangible resources for this effort.
