When you commit your life’s work to advocacy, as I have, it’s always rewarding to see the impact of your efforts. This month, I was invited to represent Queen’s University in the promotion of its first ever Accessibility Hub. Find out more about the initiative at http://www.queensu.ca/accessibility/
I was a senior Queen’s student when I became a woman with disabilities. I have an incredible respect for the staff and the faculty at Queen’s who supported me throughout my healing process, have invited me to share my experiences with their students and who now consider me among their proudest Alumni.
That’s why I was honoured to be representing the Accessibility Hub during this months Homecoming weekends. It has been a number of years since Queen’s has held their well-known homecoming celebrations, and it couldn’t have been a better year for me to support their student body than in sharing the work of the university’s accessibility services launching on October 30th. I am also proud to be delivering a keynote speech at the official launch event which I will surely blog about as well.
Find out more about their important work in this short video that we shot together while I was in Kingston. And spread the word. Every single one of us is affected by issues of accessibility and disability at one point or another in our lives. That is why I’m so passionate about opening up this conversation and making it ‘accessible’ (pun intended) to as many Canadians as possible. You can help me spread the word by connecting with me on Facebook and Twitter, and by spreading this blog post to your community.
