Disabled Writers is a resource to help editors connect with disabled writers and journalists, and journalists connect with disabled sources. Our goal is specifically to promote paid opportunities for multiply marginalized members of the disability community, and to encourage editors and journalists to think of disabled people for stories that stretch beyond disability issues.

The main focus of my work is growing understanding and acceptance of difference in our communities and as a person with a disability I particularly try to advocate for greater inclusion and understanding of those people who live with a disability or disabilities. My main approach is to make it easier for those who don't understand to be able to relate through the use of storytelling in various forms. Sometimes I share my own or others' experiences as a way to increase understanding and empathy or to impart a lesson using public speaking, written content such as articles, blog posts or creative writing or via visual media like YouTube videos. I have been a public speaker since I was 10 years old and have been running my own YouTube channel since 2015 and have written a number of articles for various organizations and publications as well as independently publishing my own young adult novel called Not Always Lost
