Cool Cats: Voices from the Disability Community

Cool Cats: Voices from the Disability Community

Did you watch the little video I made there?!

Well, like I was saying, this fun series started off as “Cool Cats” – and really, for SEO purposes, evolved into the much more staid “Voices from the Disability Community,” before rolling back to “Cool Cats.”

In this series, cool people with disabilities answer the same set of questions. You get to have fun with the variety of responses to the same set questions!

It’s a great way to to get know some awesome people, and also for those of you who are looking to network or find a mentor or connect, and it’s a way to meet people across the disability community.
