I believe each one of us is here for a reason. Our unique abilities and talents make it possible for us to be on the path of who we are supposed to be. As a mother of a boy living with autism, I have learned how to be a strong advocate and the parent he needs me to be. As a teacher, I have learned the best ways to teach children with different abilities. As a film composer, I believe in the power of motion pictures and the long lasting impact it can have in the way we process the world. As a Board member of Community Advisory Committee setting up Ability Awareness Programs at our local schools was supposed to be a short-term commitment, and now it has become a life-long journey. As the founder of Ability Awareness Project, I'm so fortunate to be able to impact the lives of so many children, all while partnering with some of the most passionate and driven philanthropists in our community.
I CAN NO LONGER STICK MY HEAD IN THE SAND AND PRETEND IT'S NOT HAPPENING AS ANOTHER CHILD COMMITS SUICIDE DUE TO BULLYING...
