Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Cooked and delivered a meal for a family of four. This family had a new baby three weeks ago. Mother became ill after delivery and remained in the hospital for ten days. The meal needed to follow strict nutritional and allergy guidelines. I also volunteer on the Human Rights Committee for The Arc.
Why are you participating?: 

I believe that you are a person first who then has a disability and or diagnoses. Your disability does not define you. You define yourself.

I volunteer to the Epilepsy Foundation on a yearly basis.
Why are you participating?: 

I wear a lot of different shirts, like the one I'm wearing in my picture, because people like to judge and they like to guess without meeting me. I wear it, so they know I am unashamed and although I am not my Label, I am strong in who I am.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I've worked and volunteered for multiple social service agencies committed to social justice, empowerment, and improving the quality of life for marginalized peoples. I am also a grad student who is studying to one day operate a social service agency like those I have worked for.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because I understand the damaging affects of labeling one another has on our community. These labels are devised in order to separate us and keep us from reaching social equity.
