I am an SF Bay Area native. In 2010, I studied abroad in France for a semester and experienced my only white Christmas. I graduated from UC Santa Cruz in 2012 with a BA in Psychology. I briefly worked in foster group homes before adjusting to my "mandatory guilt-free vacation"/ disability in 2013. TheCIL has given a lot of support in creating and maintaining the "Acquired Disability Peer Support Group" that I launched and still lead.
How did you get involved with the Independent Living Movement?
I have an acquired disability, and TheCIL helped me figure out how to live with these new conditions.
I like rock climbing and cycling.
I have had an 11- year old Shiba Inu/ Rat Terrier mix dog since 2012.
