This month is Disability Pride Month. A global celebration, originating in the USA, that seeks to reclaim disabled identities and overturn the myth that to have an impairment is a reason for exclusion.

    I am proud to be disabled. I've obtained a strong passion for advocacy and campaigning. I'm a lot more open. None of this would have happened, had I not become disabled :)
