I am 21 years old and have muscular dystrophy and I am therefore permanently in a wheelchair. The reason for choosing Marbella Design Academy was that I really wanted to travel and I would like to study something creative. In this way I can do both, simultaneously. Marbella Design Academy is a school where students and teachers are from around the world, but I am the first and only one sitting in a wheelchair. The atmosphere at school is very open, all are friendly towards each other, and if we get a problem, there are people who can help us.

Marbella Design Academy is situated in Monda near the Academy where most of the students live. Monda is a real Spanish town where you can really experience the Spanish culture. Near the only tourists are the students from Academy. Although there may be some bumps along the way, am I able to move into town sitting in my wheelchair. I’m really glad I took the plunge and went to Spain to study. I hope that there are several in my situation who dare to do the same in the future.
