I'm Josh Wintersgill, 27 years old and I live with a disability called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Currently, I have been running my own business Able Move (a.k.a easyTravelseat) over the last 3 years, after winning the UK disabled entrepreneur awards and securing investment from easyGroup in 2018. Since then I have won various accolades such as an Honorary Masters and crowned Great Britain's Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2019. Aside from business I have taken on various responsibilities in the disability community space including aviation and the charity. I am also a keen sports person and aspire to be a Paralympian. 3 years ago, I was accepted onto the Great British Shooting Talent and Development squad. I currently have my eyes set for Paris in 2024. Lastly, I am a proud Man United fan!
