Why We Need to Talk About Disabilities
“What’s wrong with you?” is a question Mary Dillard often gets asked. What this college graduate and sports fan doesn’t get asked is what she needs to successfully participate. Mary challenges stereotypes and calls us all to be part creating a world that is accessible for everyone.
A Savannah, Georgia native who was born with Cerebral Palsy, Mary graduated from Georgia Southern University with a degree in technical writing and works for the Americorps VISTA program, focusing on marketing and communications. She is passionate about finding new ways to tell important stories and hopes to use her skill set to advocate for individuals with disabilities.
