After becoming disabled in 2016, I made it my goal to be open and honest about my story. Beginning with Instagram, I started to share the realities of my life with chronic illness and disability. Talking to people about my experiences continues to surprise me and help me grow my own knowledge of what it means to be disabled. Going forward, I hope to continue bringing visibility to these issues through speaking engagements. By sharing my story, I hope to help audiences reframe their conception of disability and the disability rights movement.
