My Voice


Anderson Twp. | 23 years old

One of the biggest accomplishments in my life is learning how to drive with my disability, which is ADHD. Driving makes me more independent because I don’t have to depend on public transportation, and it makes me more employable. I can drive myself to work at Sky Zone. What I want everyone to know is, don’t let your disability define you—do what you want to achieve.


North Avondale | 72 years old

I am proud of learning to use new technology. I have a Kindle Fire tablet, and I ask Alexa to read books to me. I also have a recording app called Voice Memo that I use for speech on my tablet. My provider, Chantela, got me interested in the Kindle Fire, and I also like reading books in Braille.


White Oak | 23 years old

My proudest accomplishment is graduating from Turpin High School. I felt excited when I won homecoming queen in 2017, and it honored me to come back and crown my friend Jenna as homecoming queen in 2018. I’m also proud of getting a job at TJ Maxx, where I lay out clothes and keep the store clean. I also like going to Cane Run Farm to do animal care, and being part of dance and swim team at the YMCA.
