Profile Information

Please share something about yourself, your work, and what draws you to the Inclusion Network online community.
I <3 inclusion

For my children, myself, my community and the world in which I live. I work in the country in post secondary education and help students with barriers to learning, I'm a mum to six kids (four are vanilla and two are more interesting) and I have limb girdle muscular dystrophy.

I want our world to be a vibrant, exciting, fair one to live in, where all our peoples are included. Jack and Lynda rock my world, so I'm joining this community.
What would you like to contribute to this community? What would you like to receive?
I gift the website of the Bolshy Divas - www.bolshydivas.weebly.com - to Australians living with disability and their families, and would like to contribute love, hope and respect to same-thinkers, as well as bolshiness - the courage to speak your truth and share your path with others.
How did you hear about this community?

What are some of the questions you'd like to explore, or conversations you'd like to have with others in this community?
What would it take to make every person in Australia be included in the way they want to be included?
How can we stop making the words associated with disability and difference 'dirty words' by association, because we're talking about us and them, not us and us?
How can we find out the good things that are happening around the world to share and inspire others in a way that makes them also do things to include all of our peoples?

Hi Sam...Was great meeting you and I am comfortable (however amazed) to say it feels like I have known you for much longer...

I am so looking forward to the return of Jack & Linda to Australia and hope I am able to catch up.

They have a very special gift and I am proud they have shown me how to share it.
