By Reesha Armstead
Reesha knows all too well what it means to cope with adversity in life. She lives with cerebral palsy, but she has never let her disability define who she is or what she achieves. Throughout her life, Reesha has cultivated a strong mindset that has enabled her to adapt and navigate her way through life’s ups and downs.
When the Covid-19 pandemic swept around the globe in 2020, we all faced unprecedented challenges and were forced to adapt to the “new normal”, regardless of our situation. In her insightful and inspiring book, Reesha follows the timeline of the Covid-19 pandemic, sharing her own experiences of living through these strange times. She also seeks to shine a light on the impact that various decisions made by the state have had on the disability community as a whole.
She shares personal memories and stories from her past, to show how she has developed resilience and a strong mindset that has seen her and her family through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Although The Covid Kaleidoscope examines the pandemic from different perspectives, this book is not only for those living with a disability, it is for everyone facing adversity. While the Covid-19 pandemic is a central theme, through telling her story, Reesha teaches us about strength, positivity and ultimately, the importance of showing gratitude and appreciation for all that we have.

Book 2 -- Choices Made
By Lisa King
An Amazon No 1 International Best Seller, Stories of Truth and Triumph Book 2 – Choices Made is an anthology of raw true-life stories, which are as varied as they are heart-felt.
Each author draws upon real-life experience and writes in-depth about the challenges they’ve faced, the choices they’ve made and the lessons they learnt along the way to create the life that they deserve, one of fulfilment and joy. Some subjects are more taboo than others. No matter how unpalatable some of the topics are; there is humour, love and laughter too. All will move you.
As a co-author of this incredible book, Reesha Armstead shares her story of studying at university and facing discrimination as a disabled person, whilst at the same time dealing with a multitude of personal challenges.
Sometimes you’ll feel like you’re right there in the play of the life-story being told, feeling every emotion felt at the time, and other times, you’ll feel like a spectator sitting in the audience watching the play - able to reflect on the choices made by the characters you’re watching from afar. Having both perspectives helps you get into the author’s head, “walk a mile in their shoes…” and better understand why the choices made at the time were so important with the benefit of hindsight.
