Disabilities

Roberto and Clem

We spoke with Roberto and Clem via Google Hangout in October and November 2013. Roberto and Clem are youth leaders with Project Unify who met through their involvement with Special Olympics.

Krista

We spoke with Krista via email in August 2012.

Krista, 18, is a freshman at the College of St. Scholastica in Minnesota. During her free time, Krista volunteers at a faith-based older-adult living facility, coaches and plays sports, and spends time with her friends. We talked with Krista about her experience as a person with disabilities who is an athlete and coach, and how her role as a coach has allowed her to influence other young people with disabilities and advocate for the differently abled.
