Have you been a full-time wheelchair user for at least two years and are 18 years of age or older? Do you have your own stories to share about how living with this level of (dis)Ability influences the interactions, perceptions, and treatment you experience daily?
Can you communicate your thoughts in English and live within the Eastern Standard and Atlantic Time zones?
If you answered yes to the above questions, you are eligible to participate in my study (regardless of your ethnicity) focusing on hyper-visibility (unwanted attention) and invisibility (unseen) how it negatively impacts you (ableism), the (dis)Abled body and society's expectations.
If you volunteer to participate in this study, you will be asked to do the following things.
• Participate in a 60 to 90-minute zoom interview. The app will need to be installed on your device. This is a free app; an invitation will be sent via your email.
