A woman from Stoke Poges has recently been named as one of the most influential people with a disability in the UK.

Seema, who is the founder and managing director of Blind Ambition, was revealed as one of the people by the Shaw Trust Disability Power 100, in an online event that took place this month.

The Disability Power List 100 is compiled by an independent judging panel, chaired by Baroness Jane Campbell.

Seema Flower, says: “I am so excited to be in the Shaw Trust Power 100 Disability List and look forward to finding out if I will be one of the top 10 finalists.

“I aspire to reach as many groups and individuals as possible with an impactful message that has become our mark, with the aim of reducing the inequalities and social isolation that many face within our society.

“I believe if you solve the problems of the blind, (or wider disabled customers) the sighted or able-bodied customers are easy.”

Seema has been registered blind since she was nine-years-old and started the 'stop texting, hang up and put your phone away’ campaign.

This is aimed at pedestrians to prevent tripping over her cane, as well as being aware to wheelchair users.

She was recognised by many for helping the blind across the UK and in 2018, she won an award at that year’s London Venus Awards, where she triumphed in the ‘Inspirational Woman of the Year' category.
