I’m Scared But Proud 🤩


I’m scared but proud. 🤩

Nothing short of crazy 🤩 I am very nervous and excited at the same time about my trip to New York City. This will be the first time that I meet my colleagues in person. I haven’t been to Manhattan since 2009, when I went to art school in Brooklyn. It’s going to be an interesting change to see how much the city has grown since my last trip.

I am extremely grateful that I will have a friend flying from Miami to accompany me. He constantly tells me that I have an army of angels surrounding me. I absolutely know this is genuine because I can feel their energy.

i’m going to try to document the experience traveling with a disability. There always seems to be an evitable challenges for people like me that have limited accessibility. I do my best to keep my head held high despite the problems that I constantly face because of my limited accessibility. I hope that I can turn these experiences into something that evolves into change for society. I understand the risks that it takes when you start to tell your story in a public eye. I’ve always felt the urgency for people to attempt to relate to those who do not have basic human rights. It can be such a pity to continuously fall into these traps of feeling like I should give up because I am disabled. I’ve never told myself to quit, I’ve only tried to slow down and breathe more to get a grasp of all of the things that are happening at me cohesively.

I am humbled and blessed to be in this position at this certain time of history. There’s so many things that I wish I could share but I feel this exclusivity it makes it so much more beautiful. I love being the person behind different operations that propels and fuels projects that affect thousands of peoples lives. I know that my work abilities connected to my personal life struggles will become a revolutionary moment for the shift of our society. Disability is sexy. Disability is cool. You adapt better to life because with situations that you can’t control.

i’m so nervous to fly across the world to New York City. The big buildings, huge crowds of people and flashing lights are intimidating For a person like myself. I’m small but mighty. I’m scared but proud.
