Katie Piper says don't give in to stereotypes

Now‘s columnist Katie Piper has been talking to David Cameron about taking a stand against negative stereotyping.

‘I met David Cameron recently as part of the Government’s Disability Confident campaign,’ Katie tells us.

‘It’s a cause close to my heart as the aim is to help those with disabilities get equal opportunities to find work and stay in it.’

The TV presenter, 29, had acid thrown in her face in 2008 but is determined not to dwell on the past.

‘After my attack I had to wear a pressure mask and I remember thinking: “How will I walk into an interview and be treated equally when I look like this?”,’ says Katie.

‘We should never stereotype others – or let ourselves be stereotyped.’
