“In diversity there is beauty and there is strength.” — Maya Angelou
I never saw myself reflected on TV or in books. A chubby small-town girl who liked to read and write didn’t really get much airtime on TV.
Not to mention if that girl develops a chronic illness. And then another. And another.
As more minorities speak up and rightfully demand their stories be told, I want to speak out for people with disabilities and chronic illness to plead for the same.
