About the speaker
I'm Matthew Bassett. I live in Grangetown, Cardiff. In 2011 I had a spinal accident and now have to use a chair to get around. But that isn't who I am. I'm an outgoing, life-living man with all sorts of interests. I love music and meeting new people.
My talk is to share my story about my accident and how after my accident it was just another chapter in the imaginary book we are all writing. It wasn't the end.
