KIDS ARE ALRIGHT FINALIST 004: Ollie Hutton, 17, from Wisbech
OLLIE was hailed as a “youth in a million” by his mum after having his first piece of art exhibited at the University of East Anglia.
The 17-year-old has suffered from spina bifida since birth but, despite countless operations, he’s passed his GCSEs and is now studying for a BTEC in Art and Design.
Ollie was picked as January’s winner after Judge Beth Moore praised his determination to succeed in the face of adversity.
She said: “He’s managed to succeed at school and college, and excel even further in the art industry despite his condition. It seems to me like he’s never let anything hold him back.”
