We never know what life will throw in our direction. There will be situations that are out of your control that may leave you baffled. As hard as the circumstance may be, it's possible to heal and rise above. My mission is to educate others about how to be their own self advocate. Through personal experiences, my hope is to enlighten others about accepting yourself for who you are. A disability will not stop you from living your life to the fullest; the only way it will stop you, is if you allow it
When a curve ball is thrown at you, it can feel like the world is ending. There's so much happening, and it may feel impossible to pick yourself back up. During this presentation, the primary focus revolves around facing adversity and continuing to pursue your dreams. If modifications are necessary, it doesn't change your course of action to become successful. You can do anything you set your mind to, and it's okay to ask for help. One of the strongest things you can do is ask for helping hand.
Bullying affects all youth, especially in the school systems. There are two forms of bullying, direct and indirect. Prejudice-based bullying affects the virtue of diversity. There are different brackets of diversity: gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, socioeconomic status, and age. Students coming from a diverse background are at a higher risk for being bullied. During this presentation, discussion focuses on accepting others for who they are, being open minded, and breaking away from labeling others.
