I am very passionate about educating people and raising awareness about inclusion, diversity and the importance of community connections. I believe that when people are connected to and part of their community they are more likely to feel valued and less likely to become isolated.
Through various public speaking engagements, community events, art exhibitions and visits to schools, I am able to share my story and message and hopefully be part of changing social perceptions. I am proud to be role model and advocate for people with a disability and to be part of helping others to understand that disability is not a barrier to achievement. When you look beyond the label and see the person and the abilities, you see all that is possible.
