In this issue of Inform we celebrate the art of movement and the personal significance it holds for everyone. We also chat to Ryan, a wheelchair user who offers his advice on how to plan the night out.


22 Interview

Interview 23 Getting the ball rolling Radio host, podcaster and footballer, Rosie Jenes does it all. On the eve of her second season in the Robert Rose Victorian Wheelchair Football League, Inform caught up with Rosie to find out what inspired her to pick up a footy and what her advice is for anyone thinking about playing sport. Pics: Meredith O'Shea Can you tell us a little about yourself? My name is Rosie, I'm 28 and I have Spina Bifida. I am a radio host on a show called "Are you looking at me?" on 3CR 855AM. I am hugely passionate about live music and advocating for more accessible music venues. I have also just started a podcast with my two best friends called "The D Word" where we discuss things like fashion, mental health and sport, from the point of view of three disabled women. How long have you been playing football for? I started playing football last year, so this is my second year of playing. [Last year, Rosie played for St Kilda, this year she’ll be pulling on the red and black guernsey and playing for Essendon]. Have you played any other sports? Yes. I play tennis and I have also done handcycling.
