Why I Write

Ever since I was a small child I have always been intrigued by the written word. Checking out children’s books at my local library to reading the newspaper out loud to my parents, words have always moved and compelled me.

Now, fast forward to my adult life. I had a journalism degree with a promising  career. But six months after graduation I developed severe headaches and sensitivity to light prompting me to go see an eye doctor for the first time in my life. I was diagnosed with Uveitis in its most aggressive form and within a few years I was totally blind.

Despite this diagnosis my love for the written word did not diminish. I had noticed the negative and sometimes incorrect portrayal of the disabled in the news media. I wanted to be proactive in changing that image. Language is powerful and people with disabilities must tell their own story.

Writing Not Just a Joy But a Career
