Me

I’m Meriah. I’m a teacher, an artist/photographer, cat lover, traveler, third culture kid (I grew up outside the US). I’m a trekkie nerd and movie junkie.

I also wake up at 5 every morning.

I write this blog to combine my love of teaching, my passion for disability rights, employment and stories with my photography.

I keep this space honest and real, and work to building bridges between the disability, deaf and parent communities – I am, after all, a deaf mom who has TBI, PTSD and bi-polar disorder. I also have a child with Down syndrome.
