A little about myself: I am a disabled Asian American activist, research consultant, and media maker. I created the Disability Visibility Project in 2014, an online community dedicated to creating, sharing, and amplifying disability media and culture. I love coffee, cats, baked goods, and all types of salty fried food. Here's a little more about my personal story: https://letterstothrive.tumblr.com/post/55608302401/hey-angry-girl
