Profession: Child & Youth Practitioner & Disability Advocate

Biography: I have a Degree in Disability Studies, a minor in Indigenous Studies and a college diploma in Child and Youth Work and Journalism. One of my gifts
through having NVLD has been writing! I use writing as an instrument for Disability Advocacy and education around neurodiversity. At the tender age of 6, I knew something was wrong with me. The educational system tends to focus on the “difference” and tries to “normalize” the other. Disability is a slippery slope of inadequacy,
stigma, judgement and oppression. Having NVLD created paper trails of assessments, accommodations and modifications. It created barriers and
gaps between where I was going, and what I needed to get there. I had to work twice as hard to prove I was worthy and capable. Where others found weaknesses, I found my strengths.
