How do you identify yourself?
Disabled, white woman and mom and first generation college student
List three things that people would be most surprised to learn about you.
- I’m equally as extroverted as I am introverted.
- I love water, but not really the ocean.
- I’m from a very (very!) rural town in Illinois
Whom do you admire and why?
I admire my Mom (Mama Scott) because she’s loving, caring and strong. She’s always there to support me and my sister without judgment and she lets us make our own decisions. Mama Scott is someone I can confide in, she always challenges herself to learn new things and engages in dialogue around those topics, and we can speak openly about our challenges with physical and mental health… basically any challenge! Mama Scott is the type of Mom (and person) I aspire to be.
