Lucy Martin Disability

Martin was born without her right forearm and hand. However, it was totally normal to her. She did everything that the kids around her were doing, and she never felt it held her back. She rode bikes, swam, played musical instruments, and did lots of dance and drama.

“I was perhaps a bit over capable – in nursery, I used to tie the other children’s shoelaces for them and cut up their lunches!” she said.

Martin’s family also supported her throughout the journey. They were also members of the charity Reach, which supports children with upper limb differences. “It was great for me to be able to meet so many other children like me through the charity,” Martin said.

Martin has also tried a prosthetic or bionic arm. However, she didn’t like it.

“Yes, I have. It’s advised that you get fitted for a prosthetic arm as soon as possible so that you can learn to use it as you grow. Because of this, my mum took me to get one as a baby. I have very vague memories of this, but I never really got on with it – my mum says I spent most of my time taking it off and putting it in the toy box,” she explained.

“In primary school, I was fitted with a movable prosthetic hand. Before taking it home, I had to go to appointments to learn how to use it. Once home, I took it to school and did a ‘show and tell’ of it to pretty much the whole school!

“But, by the next day, I had decided I didn’t want to take it to school again as it was too heavy and I felt I didn’t need it.”

Lucy Martin BBC

Lucy is a weather presenter at BBC. She is also the first visibly disabled BBC weather presenter. In 2015, she took part in a BBC initiative that offered disabled people with a passion for weather and the environment the chance to learn about the job. Following a three-day workshop, she was offered the opportunity to start training to be a weather presenter.

Growing up, Lucy has always been interested in the weather. “I have always been interested in the weather – I’m British! I also love geography and the variety and breadth of topics that come within it, so I decided to take a degree in it,” she said.

“As part of my geography degree, I did meteorology. It’s one of those subjects where the more you learn, the more you want to know,” she added.

Lucy came across the BBC initiative when she was at a school friend’s house and her mum saw an advert from the BBC about the initiative. Lucy didn’t hesitate in applying. To her excitement, she was offered a space for a three-day workshop in July 2015.

“The workshop was quite intense – there’s a lot more involved in weather presenting than perhaps initially meets the eye. There were lots of different sessions, including voice coaching and storytelling. I meet with a mentor to help guide me through the day and tell me more about what the job is like. I also got to spend time with a make-up artist and be in the studio actually practicing presenting,” Lucy said.

“When presenting the weather, you don’t have autocue or a script, and you mostly use a green screen, so you have to get used to talking without being prompted and pointing at the right place!” she added.
