The journey of Tarik Rever

Being an Influencer and Activist

Hi my name is Tarik Rever. I am a disabled model, artist, activist, inventor for the disabled, and singer. I used to be a dancer and martial artist. Over time I developed myasthenia gravis and my health declined. I am still disabled but I built up my health from a very low point. At first I was barely conscious and had trouble speaking. Nowadays I still have rough days but it is much better than before. I channel my energy to helping others as an influencer, activist, and model. Using social media as a platform to help others in the disabled community have a voice. I ask others that are disabled or have medical issues to share their experience on my post so my reach as an influencer lends its energy to others. I am trying to create a movement where there is more emotional support for the disabled. We are helping each other lift each other up.

The Medical System

I also focus on the injustice of the medical system. Most of us that are disabled don’t get the full care we need. Either it’s too expensive or we are often misdiagnosed, which creates a whole host of health problems. Over the years I have been working with other disabled influencers to shine a spotlight on this issue. I hope to gain more reach working with others. We truly can create more change with unity.

My Technology for the Disabled

I am developing tech that helps those that are disabled gain more mobility and strength. There are a lot of prototypes that I am building that show great promise. I could do more with more funding and resources. Right now I created a glove that dramatically increases the grip of the wearer. There is an articulated neck brace that gives more natural movement while still supporting the head and neck muscles. In the works is a body support that will have ways to improve breathing and support the spine. Stay tuned for more updates.
