I am a 18 year old accomplished activist, speaker, and writer. I also happen to be chronically ill. I am the founder of We Exist , a social movement to include disabled people in activism and start a real conversation about ableism. I am passionate about disability rights, including healthcare legislation, as well as women's rights and queer rights. I have been an advocate my whole life, growing up in a house filled with feminism and social justice and leadership but it has quickly become an all engulfing passion. I have a lot of that, passion. I am passionate about making the world a better place and I am passionate about writing and making art and I am passionate about learning and I am passionate about dogs and I am passionate about the color yellow and I am passionate about a really good denim jacket and red lip combo. I also have a lot of dreams. I don't quite know what they all are yet but I know I've got a lot of them. I also know that I will not let anything get in my way of striving for them.
In my writing you can hear a lot about my passions and my dreams but you can also just hear a lot about me; because when it comes down to it, I am just trying to get busy living.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. I assure you, it will be one of ups and downs, wins and failures, stumbles in the path, changed paths, and a whole lot of fun.
