- Hi! My name is Sydney (call me Syd, I don't really use my knees) I've been a writer for as long as I can remember, and an advocate for even longer. My passion for disability activism and advocacy was born from my experience growing up with Spina Bifida.
I am a blogger at bifinmediasres.com (my personal site) and have been writing there for several years. I have also written for Rooted in Rights and Center For Disability Rights. I have written on my personal experiences and opinions as a disabled person as well as issues facing the disability community.
