My name is Spencer West. I have been fortunate to grace over 60 WE.org Day stages in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States as a featured speaker. In all my travels, I have spoken to and interacted with world prominent personalities such as Prince Harry; Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau; former U.S. Vice-President, Al Gore; Martin Luther King III; Mia Farrow; Jennifer Hudson and Natalie Portman; among many others.
I am Sara. I am from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States. I am a daughter, aunt, sister, friend and professional. I suffer from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a disease of the bones that makes them brittle. My mantra is “Design the life that I love."”
If these famous people with disabilities share something, besides their professional success, it is their ability of self-improvement. The lives of most of them have not been easy and precisely because of that, they are an example and inspiration.
My name is Mitch St. Pierre, I have osteogenesis imperfecta, or in other words, my bones are brittle as glass so I use a wheelchair. I know what you must be thinking, what on earth would a person with my condition be doing in a Cambodian jungle, miles from civilization on a wheelchair? Well let's say I'm an adventurous soul. I was here in the jungle, north of Cambodia with my good friend from Canada, Shawn, and our new friend Max who had been working at my hotel.
