The 15th Annual Chicago Disability Pride Parade
Disability Equality -- Long Overdue!
Date: July 21, 2018
Kimberly was instantly drawn to my not yet powerful, but potentially strong leadership abilities. I was able to take trips to promote the group as well as speak to the press and different organizations and I was in love. It was not until May of last year I was asked to demonstrate my newly strengthened and reinforced skills by being asked to lead by myself! I decided I could do it and naturally I was empowered and inspired.
During my time spent as a leader in and of the group I was able to complete my Associates Degree, get promoted to a custom position with the Chicago Park District, and graduate with distinction as a ceremonial speaker from the International Performing Arts Academy.
In the future I hope to either find a permanent custom position perfect for me, but in the meantime I am seeking to create an accessible App for this City of Chicago that I was born and raised in!
