Disability with a little background
I do not consider myself to have a disability, however I have struggled with complex-PTSD for a long time.
Previous work or background
I have grown up around technology my whole life and have an especially strong passion for anything computer related, ecology and cooking.
Why are you proud to be part of the Accessibility Team?
I am proud to work in an environment that I feel accepts me how I am. I am also proud to work in a field where I can apply my knowledge of computers to help people with disabilities experience the same things I’ve always loved to do.
Why does accessibility matter?
I believe that companies should give equal opportunity for everyone to access information by implementing accessible options. I also think that all people should be able to access every single thing on the internet regardless of their circumstances.
How do clients benefit from your input?
Through my work and the technical team’s work, companies can learn what to look out for and change to make their websites more accessible to a much wider audience.
