EDUCATING & RAISING AWARENESS EVERYDAY
I am a multiple amputee because I didn’t understand the signs and symptoms of sepsis. I consider it part of my mission to educate people on how to know the difference between feeling like you have the flu and understanding that you’re in a medical emergency and need to get to the hospital immediately.
I am also spreading awareness about disability and limb-loss to help normalize them through advertising and media. The more people see disability and learn and talk about it, the more they understand it and normalize it. This is why I’ve expanded into modeling and acting, in hopes that my body differences can inspire other.
