About this Book

Author: Sinead Burke

Date Published: 13-Oct-2020

There are so many people in this world. 7.53 billion to be exact. But there is only one of me and one of you. You are enough just as you are… Sinéad Burke is a teacher, activist and little person. Drawing on her own experiences, this is her guide to believing in yourself, having pride in who you are and using your voice to make the world a fairer, more inclusive place. From the power of being different, to celebrating the things you love about yourself and helping others do the same, this is your handbook for breaking the mould and finding your place in the world.

About the Author

Sinead Burke (Author)
Sinead Burke is an educator, writer and advocate. Born in Dublin, Sinead is interested in making the world a more equitable place. Her career began in the classroom, teaching children from ages to four to twelve. Sinead received the Vere Foster Medal for Teaching by Trinity College, Dublin but this desire to create equality and access couldn't be contained to the classroom. With a Masters in Broadcast Production, Sinead understood the power of storytelling and as a disabled woman, became aware of the lack of representation in television, museums, dolls, books... and fashion.

Sinead is a Contributing Editor of British Vogue, and in September 2019, she was the first little person to ever feature on the cover of Vogue magazine. Selected by HRH the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, Sinead is considered a 'Force for Change' and one of the most influential women working in the UK and Ireland.

Sinead is responsible for the introduction of the word 'duine beag', meaning little person, into the Irish language. She has collaborated with Lottie Dolls to create the first little person doll, and with the National Museums of Scotland to create the first little person mannequin.

Natalie Byrne (Illustrator)
Natalie Byrne is a Latina illustrator based in London. She studied Graphic Design at Sheffield Hallam University, and found her illustrative voice combining colour and important topics. Natalie's work promotes intersectional feminism and tackles social issues such as sexual assault, mental health and equality.
