Opportunities that many take for granted are not always a given when you are disabled.
Being the first Singaporean woman to benefit from a Guide Dog, my journey as an advocate started with raising awareness, so others who follow can have a dignified tomorrow.
Our Asian attitude towards disabilities perpetuate the many antiquated ways of “inclusion”.
Discrimination and inequity are a daily challenge no matter the disability.
My vision is to nudge society towards true inclusivity where every person who is disabled has the equal opportunity to lead a meaningful, dignified life!
