Joint statement by our Honour Roll on being empowered by their Disability

Honour Roll Leadership Team
Grant Recipients

“We have all overcome challenges with our disabilities and amongst us our disabilities include intellectual, quadriplegic, paraplegic, spinal muscular atrophy amputee, vision impaired and cerebral palsy.

Our disabilities inspire us to be the best we can be everyday. We problem solve and work out how to do many things that most take for granted.

We know one thing for sure, by embracing our Disability we show others around us that anything is possible with equality and the right supports.

Our lives are as equal as any other person and we are valued by those around us. We strive on optimism and being the best human beings we can. Everyone benefits from that.”
