Iโ€™m scared but proud. ๐Ÿคฉ

Nothing short of crazy ๐Ÿคฉ 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 havenโ€™t been to Manhattan since 2009, when I went to art school in Brooklyn. Itโ€™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.

iโ€™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. Iโ€™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. Iโ€™ve never told myself to quit, Iโ€™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. Thereโ€™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 canโ€™t control.

iโ€™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. Iโ€™m small but mighty. Iโ€™m scared but proud.
