The main focus of my work is growing understanding and acceptance of difference in our communities and as a person with a disability I particularly try to advocate for greater inclusion and understanding of those people who live with a disability or disabilities. My main approach is to make it easier for those who don't understand to be able to relate through the use of storytelling in various forms. Sometimes I share my own or others' experiences as a way to increase understanding and empathy or to impart a lesson using public speaking, written content such as articles, blog posts or creative writing or via visual media like YouTube videos. I have been a public speaker since I was 10 years old and have been running my own YouTube channel since 2015 and have written a number of articles for various organizations and publications as well as independently publishing my own young adult novel called Not Always Lost. I am now also working as a qualified independent Life Coach.
