I am Emily. I’m 22 years old and have been living in Long Beach, CA for the past three years. Before that I was in Valley Center, CA. No idea? It’s a small town in northern San Diego County. It has been great living the city life and being exposed to such diverse cultures and demographics. I love it and I don’t see myself living anywhere else at the moment.
I started this blog because as I grew up, I realized the importance of advocacy in every person’s life. My brother has a developmental disability, and he will need sometime to care for him for the rest of his life. But then again, we all need somebody to care for us for the rest of our lives. We are all different and disabilities are just differences. I want to show you how to stop forming attitudes about others based on labels and start to celebrate and encourage the beauty in the differences between us.
