Just one drop. Just one small word or action made in the name of change can change the tide. We can all make a difference.

A6. Always remember that YOUR STORY is powerful. Don't worry too much about not knowing specific laws or statutes or statistics. Speak from the heart.

This is larger than a “disability" issue. Go after the things you want! Set a clear goal and identify the steps that you need to take and obstacles you need to come and then make a plan to progress each day, no matter how small. - DR

Q3 Advocacy generates awareness. Like a ripple in a wave pool that spreads. When we touch another person that knowledge spreads.
