  • You are a self-advocate who wants to learn how to tell your own personal story so that other people learn more about life with a disability.
  • You are willing to share your story and have us help set up groups for you to speak with. (Examples: students and teachers; doctors and other medical professionals; community organizations and more.)
  • You want to make things better for ourselves and other advocates by speaking-out so that people have a better understanding about disabilities.
  • You want to have fun enjoying this activity because it is a great opportunity to make a difference.
