A Worle youngster’s inspirational story has received Government recognition.
Makayla Nunn, aged 16, of Priory Community School Academy, has lived with ME since the age of eight.
She learns through robot Daz, who sits in her lessons when she is too ill to attend school.
The Government has filmed a video of Makayla and her robot that was used for the Department for Digital Culture, Media and Sport and also on International Youth Day.
Now in her final school year, Makayla plans to study animal management at Weston College from next September, starting a career working with dogs or horses.
