Ankylosing Spondy What? An Invisible Disease (Aerilyn Medina: Disability Awarness Interview)

I am really excited about my self-made business OARCID Services which stands for Organizing Accessible Resources & Connections on Inclusion & Disability. I really enjoy spreading awareness and advocating about disabilities. I want people to know that they are not alone in their journey, and that people are fighting for accessibility and rights. I hope that I can reach my overall goal of having a community centre where I can employ people with disabilities and really reach others. But for now small baby steps in helping businesses/organizations become more accessible and inclusive.

Jessica Karim: Vlogging to Change the World (Disability Awareness Interview)

Jessica says, "I make YouTube videos. I saw a severe lack of blind college students when I was about to start college, so I decided to make my channel so that I could share my voice and story. Just sitting in front of a camera, and talking about issues that I’m really passionate about is really cathartic for me. It is just really nice to have my own little space on the internet."

Blind People Write Books: Interview with Award Winning Author J.E. Pinto

"I really wish people understood that blindness isn’t something to be afraid of. It changes a few logistics about how life works, but it doesn’t in itself make people physically needy, mentally slow, or overly unhappy. People who are blind pursue meaningful careers, raise children, engage in hobbies, and live full lives at all ages." -J.E. Pinto
