Social Worker Stereotypes Redefined
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 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.
I believe we are all born with basic goodness.
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.
It is my passion to do charity work and I feel that I am doing the right thing.
