Bebe Lorna Walker (pictured), aged 81 recently finished the UCanDoIT course. Originally from New Zealand she came to live and work in London 55 years ago.
About 12 years ago Bebe was diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe.
Bebe wanted to find out more about computers and how they could improve her life. Her wish was to be able to email friends and family and to look on the Internet for information on geography, languages and peoples. The Internet allows her to travel to places “virtually”.
