You wear a lot of hats as an ed­i­tor-in-chief of a magazine (not lit­er­ally, of course, ex­cept when at the races dur­ing the Spring Car­ni­val) – but up un­til this is­sue, I can’t say I’ve ever played the role of a ge­nie. Yet it was without hes­i­ta­tion that I hap­pily agreed when I was re­cently con­tacted by the Starlight Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion to see if Stel­lar could as­sist in grant­ing the wish of a young man. Al­most three years ago, Jason Clymo fell through the mid­dle of a stair­well and suf­fered a bro­ken back and spinal cord in­jury. Now 22, and a wheelchair­bound para­plegic, Clymo feels strongly about greater in­clu­sion of peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties in the Aus­tralian me­dia and told the Starlight Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion it was his wish to be in a magazine fash­ion shoot. You can see the re­sults for your­selves on page 14, where­upon I’m sure you will agree that Clymo has a very promis­ing fu­ture ahead of him. As I told him when I met him at the shoot, all we ask is that he doesn’t for­get us when he’s a world-fa­mous model.
