Firsthand Stories

Persons with disabilities lead diverse, fulfilling lives despite the adversity they often face. As a part of the Center of Excellence-Accessibility, we want to highlight the lived experiences of persons with disabilities through their own perspectives. Our team conducted a series of interviews where each individual was able to freely share their story and have produced a written narrative of the experiences described during our discussion. We are excited to share these stories of resilience and perseverance.
