Stay adventurous!

Hi All,

I have found it hard to stay up to date with the blog, my apologies! Even though this is my next to last semester, I have found so many new things to do on campus. I’m improving my pool skills, and just a few weeks ago visited the Living Well studio for a meditation session. Are there any new or adventurous activities you have found enjoyable around campus? Or places? I’d love to hear about them, as I’m always willing to try something new.

Cheers,

Emily

hangout with friends and the gym

I want to the gym in the morning and I was there for like one hour and I had a lot of fun and I cant wait to go again after school. I was hanging out with some of my friends today and it was fun and I am sad that we are going to be on break for one week but its okay I will see my friends after break and I cant wait at all. I wish that I am on campus more so I can go to the gym. the gym is a lot of fun and I wish that I was at the gym right now but I am going right after school today after I have a meeting with some friends. I am going to miss all of my friends when I am on break and I know that I am going to have a lot of fun and I cant wait to go back to school after break and tell my friends about what I did over the break.

 

I love college and all of my friends and mentors that I get to hang out with and it is so cool that I am in college because ever since I was 8 I wanted to be in college and now my wish came true and I am very happy and I hope to be a teacher for little kids.

Disability Awareness Day-Press Conference

The Disability Awareness Day was hosted by the Vermont Coalition For Disability Rights at the State House in Montpelier, Vermont.  This wonderful event happened last Wednesday and it’s all about self advocacy.  During the day the self advocates and many others had a chance to talk to their legislators about barriers they face and what is important to them.  Some of the main topics during the day were: housing, funding for healthcare, education and employment.  These are some important topics for people with disabilities, and also for self advocates.

During mid morning there was a press conference about employment and raising minimum wage. This years keynote speaker was Chester A Finn who is from Albany, New York.  He was appointed by President Obama in 2010 to be on the National Council on Disability. Chester is blind and has a developmental disability.  He was the first speaker at the press conference followed by Dr. Bryan Dague.

 

Disability awareness day 9

Dr. Bryan Dague works at the Center on Disability and Community Inclusion at the University of Vermont. He talked about supported employment and  finding the right job match for everyone.  For example,  Bryan helped me to find two internships that matched my interests and hobbies.
