Joining Kim in this episode are two Rusell Silver Syndrome women who chat about their experiences surrounding various topics such as confidence and self-esteem, fashion, dating, socialising and other advice they want to share with listeners.
Whether it’s from feeling the self-consciousness when visiting a children’s department for clothes or shoes, to finding the perfect wedding dress for our proportionate form of dwarfism. The guests explain what it is like to deal with and experience prejudice – in the workplace or when people first meet them. And how one guest explains that ‘faking confidence, can make confidence’.
Content Warning: In this episode, our guests talk about the ableist prejudice and attitudes they have faced because of Russell Silver Syndrome. Including bullying in the workplace, as well as, the objectification and fetishisation of this proportionate dwarfism.
In this episode, Kim is joined by three RSS women who all have careers in the Performing Arts.
They each talk about the challenges they have faced in pursuing their dreams.
They discuss what advice would they give to fellow RSS people who may have fears or concerns about being able to achieve their goals in a chosen career.
And is there anything they would like to say to those listeners who know nothing about RSS or other types of dwarfism?
