Welcome to the Wonderful World of Vivek
Name: Vivek Gohil
Type of Muscular Dystrophy: Duchenne
Describing Myself in 3 words: Creative + Witty + Determined
Roles: Blogger + Disability/Accessibility Crusader + DMD Pathfinder + MDUK Trailblazer + Muscle Owl Co-Editor
Why did I choose the username UncannyVivek?
To be honest it was an easy decision: the first Comic Book I ever read was Uncanny X-Men #230 + technically I’m also a mutant.
What are my hobbies?
- Reading: Sci-fi novels, Fantasy novels, Comic Books
- Gaming (whenever I can)
- Anything related to Superheroes + Star Wars
- Building LEGO sets
- Cartoons, Nature/Science Documentaries
- Meeting Friends
- Disability Awareness
What annoys me the most?
– Being stuck behind people who walk slowly or suddenly stopping in front of me
– People that lie or don’t lie convincingly enough
– People who are constantly negative or attention-seeking
What would be my Superpower?
Telekinesis would be my ideal superpower. This would enable me to have complete independence, never encounter accessibility issues, face disability discrimination, bad public transport provisions that disabled people encounter everyday + (most importantly) to mess with people’s minds.

What is your favourite trait in yourself?
It’s a tricky question to answer without sounding arrogant but my favourite trait of myself would be my courage. Courage has given me the tools to clearly voice my emotions or feelings clearly (a recent acquisition to be honest), quickly analyse a situation and experiences that could help other people in similar situations.
