As we step into July, we celebrate the beginning of pride month. Accessibility for All takes pride in the work that we do. We believe disability or no disability, everyone is unique, and we take pride in helping individuals take pride in their own uniqueness and appreciate life even with a little twist.
Even the word disability without the d spells “is ability,” so why let one alphabet put us down. Let us rather try to make the best of the moments we have available, as no barrier is too hard to break with AforA at your
side. Let us shine with our barriers and be the change that we want to see in the world around us.
Let’s work together to make our unique circumstances our strengths rather than a weakness. I shine with my barrier of disability, as I do not let my disability define me. I have been trying to achieve my lifelong dream and goal of becoming a primary, junior certified educator. There have been many physical and emotional barriers. There have been many judgmental comments, discrimination and, more than all, the ablest mindset. Despite all of the barriers, I am just a year away from becoming a licensed Ontario Educator.
I have met some road blockers and some very encouraging educators along the way, and these inspiring educators have helped shape me into the educator I would like to be. I leave you with an article and a thought that you can do whatever you put your mind to.
This is a bit more about me. What is your story? We would love to hear your story. Please do share with us.
