The 26th of July this year marks 30 years since the Disability Rights Act was established in 1975, in the U.S. The fighting since then hasn't stopped to see disabled people being included within our society. As a recognition disability pride month is celebrated in some places around the world, and this year I have seen quite a few friends of mine within this community speak out #disabilitypridemonth.
For me, as a disabled person, I believe that one day there will be world out there where everyone is included regardless of how you are from; the colour of your skin, the people or god that you believe in, LGTBIQ+, disability, etc.
I am proud to call myself disabled, not only because I am disabled myself, but because I know some amazing people that are doing incredible things for this community. I am so thankful that I have got the opportunity to represent my state in sport, but also having the opportunity to speak up and show others that we, as disabled people are a part of this world and we should have equal rights than others.
I am proud to call myself disabled, and I'm proud to have a disability 🚶🏼♀️
To all of my friends out there, I hope you had a good disability pride month 💙
