“I believe to change the world we have to learn to tell and listen to a new set of stories about the world that we want to create. The media is being watched all the time. The power of it is unimaginable. If we paint the wrong pictures about people with disabilities, the world will see it and believe it. We have to familiarize audiences seeing people with disabilities on their screen, authentically and in a new light. Knowledge is power and the media is a global teacher whether we actively realize it when we are watching entertainment or not”.
