Stories connect, empower, change lives and ultimately, the world.

I crave stories of our lives across the disability spectrum, because all too often, it’s easy for us in our respective disabilities to feel alone and isolated. As a deaf woman, I crave visuals.

Both the 365 Days with Disability Project and Voices from the Disability Community are projects that I started with the hope of sharing the normal of our lives, in all their mundane glory. I believe that everyone has their something – both their challenges and their triumphs, and everyone has their story.

These projects are designed to share both.

To participate in 365 Days with Disability, please click the image below – it will tell you all about it. To participate in Voices from the Disability Community, please email me and I’ll send you the questions.

If you are a blogger with a disability, please add your site to the list of blogs, and join the rest of us over at the Federation of Disabled Bloggers!
