“Who I Am” features nine real people with disabilities. Rather than be defined by disability, these individuals are the sum of their many life roles — which includes working in jobs they love.
Nearly one in five Americans has a disability, and not all disabilities are visible. Whether it affects us — or a child, spouse, relative, neighbor or friend — increasing employment for people with disabilities benefits everyone.
The message of “Who I Am” is to remind us to see one another for who we are and what we can contribute.
