Muscle Warriors poster - featuring Ryan O'Leary who is a powerchair football player

Muscle Warriors is an award-winning short documentary that follows Ryan O'Leary, who lives with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He expresses that living with a life-limiting condition can effect your mental health, but it is important to try and maintain a positive well-being by doing something you love.

Ryan plays for a powerchair football team called Muscle Warriors PFC and he powerfully illustrates that partaking in sports is a fantastic way to keep a healthy mind, through building confidence, socialising and achieving.

Stephanie's film aims to remove the stigma around disability and show how people with disabilities can lead a positive and successful life.

Stephanie has won the following awards for Muscle Warriors;

Award of Recognition - Best Shorts Competition

Best Diversity Short - MiraBan UK Film Awards
