Joe’s earliest disability advocacy experience came from planning two events that featured people with disabilities. The first was for an author who spoke of his life experiences while living with a tracheotomy and using a power wheelchair. The second event was a power wheelchair soccer demonstration. Later, I personally spoke with Terre Haute’s local state senator and state representative at the WILL Center—a fellow IL organization—to advocate for the Center’s funding.continually influenced by others with disabilities and the impact they’ve had on my life. I’m a strong proponent that people with disabilities have a unique perspective on life and can offer those insights and skills to better the lives of people with disabilities along with all of society. I am a 2017 Indiana State University graduate with Bachelor’s degree in Accounting; and am in the process of filing for my CPA license.
