[PODCAST] Angel Memela talks about her disability with Matt Tsolo

Currently, about 7.5% of the country’s population have disabilities; about 20% of that number are enrolled in higher education institutions.

With the Disability Rights Unit in partnership with Student Governance and RadioDUT having an awareness event on Thursday (11 April), The Afternoon Shutdown’s Matt Tsolo  had a chat with Angel Memela who is a 2nd year Clinical Technology Student.

After having her first child, Memela had complications which resulted to her not being able to pass stool. She then had a surgical procedure called colostomy to bring part of the large intestine (the colon) to the surface of the body to form an artificial opening on the outside of the tummy or abdomen.
