Disability = Strength

It is a common misassumption that a disability means having limitations and weaknesses, and disabled individuals often feel pitied or belittled. But in realty having a disability can help build your character and strength. I feel that because of my disabilities I am a strong advocate willing to go the distance to overcome any obstacles that come my way. It has also helped me develop compassion, awareness and acceptance for others. More importantly, it has led me to my purpose of helping and inspiring people through my words. I am proud of who I am today and would not change one thing.
