Maysoon Zayid y_largeI Have 99 Problems…. Cerebral Palsy is Just One

(Click on title above to view video)  Maysoon Zayid is a disability advocate, happens to be Arab and have Cerebral Palsy.  She is from New Jersey (she said this is one of her problems, ha ha), is a stand up comedian, actress and author.  I found the video funny and inspiring.  I relate to her as an author, advocate and a person who does not let her disability limit her.  Like her, I would like to help create a positive image for persons with disabilities in the media and in life.  It is so awesome that they publish the transcript of her talk.  Watch for my book to be available this Spring, “Helping in Action” is a children’s story with a “can, can” message.  Thanks to my friend Amy D. who sent me this Ted Talk.

I Love to SKI FAST – Sochi Winter Paralympic Games Begin

Do you know how much I love to snow ski!?
I don’t let CP stop me! One of my favorite things to do is get out of my wheelchair and SKI FAST with my buddies from Ignite.  I’m sad to say Sunday is my last ski trip of the season at Eldora Resort in Boulder, Colorado.  Soon I will be off to other adventures like; adaptive water skiing, kayaking and rafting.  Spring and summer is just around the corner.
