2020 Was One of the Best Years of My Life.

Self-portrait of Inês that was edited in order to make it seem like a drawing. Inês is a portuguese white woman. She lays on the floor and stares at the camera. She wears a white cloth mask with small pink flowers in it. There are disposable face masks around her, on the floor. -there is a card box wrapped in a white sheet of print paper that reads “EMPATHY”.

“2020 helped me see the world with a rejuvenated perspective. It helped me understand even more that the world was ready, it just wasn’t using its resources the right way, meaning, the world could be accessible for everyone if we wanted it to be.”

“Just because my disability and needs vary from day to day, or even on the same day, it does not invalidate my disabled experience. We need to keep pushing forward so that others too can affirm their disabled identity.”
