Positivity is Contagious!

All in a Day

"Stay at home!" "Isolate!" "Social distancing!" These terms have been thrown around a lot lately. However, for those of us with disabilities, these terms are pretty much an everyday occurrence. With or without a deadly virus looming over us, we fight all the time to be seen and heard as equals. Why should now be any different?


I am happy to say that this particular event has actually done the opposite. I have seen many people on my social media timeline who have disabilities showing the world what it is they can do. For example, a friend of mine, who lives with a spinal cord injury, posted a video of her exercising. Another example is, I have even put my advocacy out there and read two of my books on Facebook Live. Now, I am not the most technologically savvy person, so my attempt was a disaster in both accounts. However, the point is I was out there trying to entertain and educate while giving a sense of inclusion during a time of isolation.


These are just some of the many incredible examples. People have shown how we can stay active and included during this time. What will you do to keep this movement going? How will you be heard because even though you may be alone that doesn't mean you have to be silent.

I live in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida and I have a published children's book called "The Adventures of KatGir," I’m a public speaker, and a co-host for the online radio show "Behind the Chair." I received my Associate of Arts degree for Exceptional Student Education at Miami Dade College. I enjoy writing, surfing, and arts and crafts. I have Spina Bifida. I describe myself as determined, enthusiastic, and helpful.
