Winston B. Clements
Winston was predicted to live a life of isolation and pain due to a rare bone disorder known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). This condition caused his bones to be extremely fragile, suffering over 200 fractures in his lifetime.
Winston is a Disability Advocate, TED Speaker and Content Creator. He has partnered with global brands including Google, Oracle and Disney. His ultimate mission is to create a world that is kinder and more inclusive to people with disabilities.
As a young person, Winston not only had to deal with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with loneliness and frustration because his body would continuously let him down. Watching his siblings and the other kids from the sidelines was a constant reminder of how different he was, and he often found himself wondering “what is the point of it all?”
Despite this, Winston considers himself to be one of the lucky ones. A significant number of people with OI do not make it beyond childhood. He was also born into a family who were destined to cope with a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his ambition. Winston credits his positive attitude to his Christian faith, as well as all the encouragement he has received from family, friends and well-wishers along his journey.
Winston graduated from University with a degree in Computer Science and then spent over 10 years working as a Consultant for global tech corporations.
His current work as a speaker and advisor, continues to have transformational effects on audiences worldwide. He is passionate about supporting the world’s leading organizations to create cultures that are truly inclusive for all. Winston is a highly requested speaker who has partnered with brands like Google, Oracle and Disney as well as featuring on the BBC, Good Morning America and Today Show. Winston is a two-time TED Speaker and YouTuber whose videos have gained over 40 million views online due to his storytelling ability and authentic style.
