Got to spend my morning watching the talented @lenawaithe and @jsim07 record a live episode of Justin’s Dont @ Me Podcast. It was an amazing time filled with laughter and wisdom and definitely inspired me 😊
Had the opportunity to see the behind the scenes of Dave Krupa’s (founder of @rompglobal) prosthetic clinic Proteus in Quito, Ecuador and meet patient Pablo Vallejo Rueda @pavallejo! Pablo is a world class paratriathlete here in Ecuador and is on our climbing team for Cotopaxi. A couple of weeks ago his mechanical knee malfunctioned and if it weren’t for the work of #ROMP he would have been without. Dave hooked him up with a back up knee provided through ROMP to get him by. Then, just yesterday his knee stopped working. His sponsor @ottobockandina came to the rescue with a new knee. His prosthetic team including the fabulous PT @carlaromeroc got him hooked up and calibrated his knee and now he’s ready to summit Cotopaxi! Thanks to the efforts of ROMP we are able to provide prosthetic care to individuals like Pablo and work to eliminate the stigma surrounding amputees and disabilities. Mobility for ALL!!! #healthcare#advocacy#ecuador#policy#amputeerights#disability#inclusion#mobilityforall#triathlon#swim#bike#run#strong#ottobock#sponsor#amputee#prosthetic#technology#life#live

“When guests come over I can sit them in the living room, make coffees on my modified table and roll it out to them. We then use it as a coffee table. I call it my everything!” – Patty Clarke referring to her unique adaptive device.
Patty needed a gadget to move things around in her apartment; that she could handle food in the kitchen, use in front of her TV or take out onto her patio with a coffee. “I had this idea of something adjustable that could be used with my manual or power chair that is also small enough to fit under my kitchen counter. So I reached out to Tetra for help” she explained.
Longstanding Tetra volunteer Ron Payne took on the project and found a table at Walmart. He modified it to move the top up and down. Additionally, he put a tilt and a clip on it so that Patty can use it as a laptop table while it doesn’t move. He put new wheels on the table to it make it easier to move it around. He’s also changed the legs of the table so Patty can get closer to it.
Ron’s gadget won the Innovation Award for the ingenious approach to design and to construct.
En @yomeamo.oficial acabamos de publicar un concurso para promover la diversidad y la inclusión y que toda mujer se sienta representada en los medios a través del modelaje. .
Y ahora mismo acabo de ver esto sobre Rihanna para el Fashion Week de NYC.
Pasarela de su línea de lencería PARA TODO TIPO DE MUJER. .
Y qué feliz me hace esta noticia.
Que en otra parte del mundo, gente que ni conoces, tengan la misma visión que tú... me siento como si en diferentes partes del mundo hay un despertar en común: PROMOVER LA DIVERSIDAD A TODA COSTA. .
Qué bueno que las pasarelas internacionales estén abriendo las puertas a mujeres de otros estereotipos, raza, contextura física para modelar sus piezas. .
Esto no debería ser una excepción, ésto debería convertirse en la norma, en la regla. .
Ojalá en Dominicana Moda o en las pasarelas de diseñadores dominicanos podamos ver todo tipo de mujeres. ¡Ya es tiempo! !ya es hora!
YAY! YOU’RE MAKING IT HAPPEN. #LACocoLoca | For English tap “more”!
🇩🇪 www.LACocoLoca.com ist eine Crowdfunding-Kampagne zur Stärke der Imperfektion. Ich bin Coco de Bruycker, ich habe eine Spastik seit Geburt. Ich habe meine Heimat #Deutschland verlassen, um an der New York Film Academy zu studieren, weil deutsche Schauspielschulen sich schwer tun, behinderte Schauspieler auszubilden. 2 Semester hab ich schon erfolgreich abgeschlossen — hilfst Du mir, damit ich auch für die verbleibenden 6 Semester lernen kann?
— Oder auch: Wir sehen uns dann bei den Oscar-Verleihungen 2037 — bist Du Teil meines Traums?

🇺🇸 www.LACocoLoca.com is a crowdfunding project fuelled by the power of #imperfection . I'm Coco de Bruycker, have cerebral palsy since birth and I left my home country, #Germany , to pursue my acting education at New York Film Academy, because German schools decline disabled actors. I've already completed 2 semesters. Now I need you to make the remaining 6 semesters happen — or rather the Oscars 2037 — are you a part of my dream?

Whether you’re religious or not, it is so important that we fight for the equal rights of those with special needs! It’s important that we teach people to embrace those with disabilities and/or handicaps! Having special needs is not a curse. It is not a “lesson from god.” It is not a punishment. Life is better for everyone when we embrace the good and the bad that comes with special needs. Believe me, there are many joys and lessons that come from it!!
So after a fabulous start to school for Kush, not even 2 weeks in and unfortunately we’re facing our first “blip”. 2 days ago I was told Kush’s 1-2-1 was unfortunately leaving due to a change in personal circumstances. His 1-2-1 that has got to know him slowly over the last year when I fought to start a slow transition into the setting to enable us to hit the ground running this September. This was because I didn’t want to waste the first term with his TA getting to know him, how to get the best out of him, learning about the learning profile of a child with DS, learning how to sign, learning how Kush communicates, and deciphering his unclear speech. I wanted it all in place so he can focus on learning and making friends like his peers. Let’s call it Sod’s law shall we. Certain things are out of my control, but I gave it my best shot. When I was told I somehow managed to hold it together. Unlike the next morning at drop off when my emotion and anxiety about the situation got the better of me and I blubbed like a baby and collapsed in the arms of his 1-2-1! Wah! I’m not naive about the fact that we will face challenges in Kushs journey through school, I just didn’t expect one so soon!
So after spending 2 days worrying about all the things Kush can’t do (yet!) I’ve spent the evening looking at videos of my boy from the summer and reminding myself of all he CAN do. And of how hard we & he worked to be ready for school. I had a meeting with the school yesterday afternoon, and reached out to some support groups to speak to mummies who are further ahead in their journey and I feel so much better. It reminded me of all the reasons why we picked this school and I’ve put my rational hat back on and trying (really hard!) not to let the worry and anxiety take over, and focusing on trusting the school to do what they committed to do & champion my boy & meet his needs. (PS If anyone happens to know an amazing person who would be a fabulous TA for my boy, send them my way! 😂) #startingschool#challenges#senmum#anxiety#worry#itwillbeok#havefaith#fingerscrossed#teachingassistant#teachers#senco#inclusion#primaryteachers#recruitment#lettinggo#mainstream

Corporate Ride Experience, with a twist.
Move over repetitive stationary cycling and traditional corporate teambuilding! There’s a new immersive workout and corporate teambuilding experience in town. CYCMODE developed a new experience geared towards corporate teams: The TEAMMODE Experience! Forget about falling backwards into the arms of your co-workers or running a simulation to find your way out of the jungle within the four walls of hotel conference room.
TEAMMODE will take your team on a real journey to discover who you are individually & as a team. The experience will help build trust and disspell the limiting beliefs that keep employees from working and living at their optimum capacity.
The TEAMMODE Experience isn't for every team. It's for the teams that are working to “level up” productivity, creativity, collaboration & engagement. Come meet the CYCMODE team for an exclusive Open House for corporate leaders who are tired of ineffective programs with little to no ROI.
Join us for our Open House on Friday, Nov. 2, 2018 anytime from 12pm – 5pm CST for:
Introduction to The TEAMMODE Experience
Light Hors d'ouvres/beverages.
