Diving deep and flying high

 Apropos - Austria 16 March 2019

Illness can exclude, depress and isolate people – but it doesn’t have to. Austrian journalist, musician and amateur diver Thomas Bayer is a prime example. Born with brittle bone disease, Bayer has been plagued by its severe symptoms: restricted growth, short-sightedness and bones that can break as easily as glass. But that hasn’t stopped him pursuing his dreams – from simply walking to diving in the West Pacific, chasing a career in journalism and exploring his passion for music. He speaks to Apropos. (610 Words) - By Natalie Zettl
