My parents and others associated with my environment, had the tendency to be uncomfortable around my surroundings because of my disability. In my mind, it is as if each person is afraid to be in my presence or company. As a result, I have experiences being stigmatized, alienated, and treated as if I was a second-class citizen; although, if you asked these individuals to claim responsibility, they would either be dumb-founded, embarrassed, or in denial.
Based upon my life’s adventures and the lessons learned along the way, inside and outside and
academic settings, I have gained and understand the human condition better than most people. Please
understand I may not have all the answers, but I have a unique way of presenting information in ways
that is easy to understand and not technically seen from both sides of the aisle.
