FAIRFIELD resident Ana Ngyuen's flight may have been delayed but the 20-year-old's career is ready for take-off.

The singer/songwriter/rapper/ and her hip-hop group, First Flight Crew, are the face of this year's Don't Dis My Ability campaign.

It's the latest accolade for a career which appeared destined to remain in the hanger.

The former Fairvale High School student didn't start talking until the age of 5 due to an intellectual disability .

But now she is making up for lost time — and no engine failure will keep her grounded.

"We all have some form of all disability and we all have one other thing: talent," Ms Nguyen said of the First Flight crew, who will perform three shows at the Fairfield School of Arts during the campaign.

"We all share a passion for dancing and since last year we have come together and showed that even though you have a disability you can do anything."

Using music as a form of expression, Ms Nguyen — who started dancing at the age of 11 — uses her voice to respond to the injustice that she sees in the media, as well as in daily life.

In recent times, she has performed in numerous stage productions and exhibitions.

She is also working on her debut album.

"This is the only the beginning," she said.

"There are many more things to come.

"As an artist I want to mix it up and experiment with different sounds and explore different types of music. "In the process I want to use it as way to teach others and prove you can do anything.

"We want to tell stories and give the voiceless a voice."
