Writer. Advocate. Change-maker.
My name is Lucy. I am a multiply and dynamically Disabled speaker, writer, activist, 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 before and 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. My work focuses on the intersection of disability justice, incarceration, and abolition. 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.
