Have you ever felt bullied, misunderstood, outcast or rejected? You are not alone. Millions of people face those feelings every single day, simply because they have a disability. I am one of them.
I will not allow any more misunderstanding to spread. I do not wish to change, I wish to be loved and accepted, as I am. I have my radio talk show every Wednesday at where I raise issues and talk about fostering positivity through friendship. See my story in "I Host A Radio Show" for all the details. This story is about working from the ground up and people power.
I am a proud supporter of 3E Love, a social apparel company whose initiative "Project Everywhere" is in the running this month (April 2010) for $250K from Pepsi Refresh. You can vote once daily. Stevie Hopkins, his sister Annie (R.I.P) and their friends established 3E Love in 2007 to help spread their message on almost anything you can wear, use, or carry. The Idea is centered around the Wheelchair Heart Symbol and The 3Es are:
"EMBRACE (diversity), EDUCATE (your community), EMPOWER (each other). Love Life"
