Great way to learn!

This Podcast show us different approaches about disabilities hearing great stories from amazing people around the globe. Also is an excellent way to learn about disabilities and how they deal with different situations like traveling. For me, it has been a great experience because it is teaching me another way to view the disabilities, how to be useful in some situations and that still we need to do a lot to be equality... Ming id a great ambassador and advocacy for Disabled who I personally admire! Congrats for this job and I invite you to learn and to be more inclusive!
