Writer. Advocate. Change-maker.
My name is Lucy. I am a writer, advocate, educator and, above all, change-maker. Whether it be through writing, speaking, or teaching, raising awareness of the disability rights movement underlies all of my endeavors.
I graduated from the University of Virginia in May 2017 with a B.A. in Anthropology and Global Development Studies. After acquiring my disability during my final year of school, I realized the stark inequalities between how I was treated when abled and how that changed after becoming disabled. Determined to make forward progress and a meaningful impact in this sphere, I decided to turn my passion into a career by attending law school.
As a Root-Tilden-Kern Scholar at the New York University School of Law, I'm working towards the visibility and acceptance of disabled people in the field at large. I look forward to gaining the tools I need to promote true equality for people with disabilities in the eyes of the law and society alike.
