ILF recipient awarded MBE for services to disabled people!
Michaela Hollywood, ILF recipient and Northern Ireland Stakeholder Group member, has been awarded an MBE and recognised in the first Kings Birthday Honours list for her services to disabled people.
On sharing the news Michaela said, “I honestly don’t think I have the words to describe the feeling of getting the letter to say you’re worthy of this kind of recognition.
“I am only one part of the disability rights movement. I am only one person. I’m a girl from County Down, with Belfast roots. This sort of thing doesn’t happen to people like me.
“An MBE is a huge day for me and my family. To the people behind my selection – thank you. And thank you to all those I work with.”
Huge congratulations to Michaela on such an incredible achievement.
