Talking Tastebuds with Jessica Quinn

Jessica Quinn is a model, speaker, disability activist and diversity advocate.

Jess lost her leg to cancer at the age of nine, but hasn’t let that be an obstacle in her mission to ensure that less able bodied people are represented in the media, with brands and on social media. She’s also run a marathon and was a finalist on Dancing With The Stars New Zealand.

In this interview, we discuss overcoming cancer, representation and diversity in the media and single-use plastic and sustainability in regards to disabilities and healthcare.
