Jean Daly Antrim
My name is Jean Daly and I am 26-years-old. I am originally from Carrigaline in Cork and I have been living in gorgeous County Antrim for nearly four years. I have a degree in Psychology and an MSc in Rehabilitation and Disability Studies from University College Dublin (UCD) and an MSc in Counselling and Therapeutic Communication from University of Ulster.
I work with the Cedar Foundation on a project funded by the European Commission called BackHome. The project is aimed at moving brain neural computer interfaces (BNCI) from the laboratory toward practical devices used at home with minimal support. I also give a number of guest lectures in UCD and University of Ulster on the topics of disability, lifespan, and electronic assistive technology.
I am a wheelchair user as a result of a horse riding accident nine years ago. I have always been a keen sports woman and I play wheelchair basketball and wheelchair tennis. I really enjoy my voluntary work and enjoy supporting a number of charitable organisations. A special achievement of mine has been setting up the multi sports club for young people with physical disabilities and their siblings that is now know as the Rebel Wheelers.
