If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I wouldn’t change a thing. I enjoy working with children living with disabilities. They are my inspiration and the very reason I am continuing my education and seeking a degree in Special Education. However, I think that educating the community on children living with disabilities is highly important. I read in random blogs and social media of how children living with disabilities are ridiculed and made fun of, some of them feel embarrassed and harassed. Some parents feel shame when their child tantrums in public because people stare and make comments. These children are no different than you and I. They are smart and loving, and have taught me the importance of acceptance. They can’t help the way they are any less than we can help who we are. If I could make a living doing what I love most, I would want to educate the world and show people that do not understand or get differences that these children are just like you and me. I would create a program that allows the community to work closely with children living with disabilities, in order for those that do not get it to see first-hand how wonderful this population really is.
