Why Not People? will also act as a members' club, creating a social community where users can receive exclusive offers and advice. Live events will accommodate those with both physical and sensory impairments. In connection with this, the company will work to introduce new technologies such as the SubPac, which transfers low audio frequencies onto the body, reinventing the way music is experienced. Jamil said: "I one day decided I simply can't continue living in a world that excludes such a large part of society. Some of my best friends are those people. Their disabilities should not prohibit them from having the same social experience as those of us who do not face the same challenges. "In this day and age, and with so many technological advances, I simply refuse to believe we can't make more effort to create a more balanced society, one that accommodates those of us who already face so many daily struggles already. I am so grateful that I am finally in a position where I can help to do something about it." Jamil recently announced her departure from the BBC Radio 1 Official Chart Show after two years. She also recently criticized Kim Kardashian for her nude photoshoot with Paper Magazine. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
