Comments Off on Sir Roden Cutler Award 2011 recipient – Ame Barnbrook

Amethyst (Ame) Barnbrook’s story is a truly remarkable one. Born with Phocoamelia she has only the lower half of her left leg, a small foot and three toes, she has no arms or right leg. She uses her three toes for eating, writing, playing the trumpet and sailing. She has achieved more in her 22 years than most will in a lifetime.

Ame has excelled in music, and sailing and has a degree in Creative Arts from Wollongong University. Her current aim is to represent Australia at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. I her own words, “It’s about what I can do, not what I can’t do. My disability is continually judged before my abilities have been recognised and I like to prove people wrong.”

It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce that Ame will be our next Sir Roden Cutler Award winner.
