My Disability Does Not Define Me! 

While it may present certain challenges and obstacles in our life, it does not dictate who we are as a person. We are defined by our passions, our achievements, and our resilience in the face of adversity. Our disability is just one part of the complex and multifaceted individual that we are. We refuse to be limited by preconceived notions or stereotypes, and we are committed to living our life to the fullest, embracing our uniqueness, and proving that our disability does not determine our worth or potential. We are capable, determined, and limitless in our aspirations, and we will not allow any obstacles to diminish our spirit or define our identity.

In this special episode commemorating the International Day of People with Disability, Sasja and Geri, proud trans women, courageously open up about their personal experiences living with disability. For Sasja, this marks her first time openly discussing her disability, a significant milestone that has been long overdue. The societal attitudes, cultural norms, and the era in which she was raised have all contributed to a reluctance to acknowledge her disability. Geri will provide an in-depth account of her life with autism, offering firsthand insights that are sure to be enlightening. The episode promises a compelling narrative, delving into the challenges and triumphs of living with a disability in a world that often overlooks the diverse experiences of individuals like Sasja and Geri.
