Interest in developmental disabilities I am a person with a developmental disability and am looking forward to being on the Minnesota government DD Council to share the knowledge that I have already learned with many others.
Experience in developmental disabilities My experience started with myself as I am an adult with a disability. I have had learning classes when i was in elementary and high school. My friends were no so nice to me in high school. They would call me very bad names. That made me feel so sad.
Anything else about yourself Today I am a very proud self advocate. And a very proud mom of a daughter with a disability that I love going to the movies and hanging out with. I have been in the documentary "Institutions to Independence" and took the 27th Partners in Policymaking class.
