You guys? Last night I was published on The Mighty . THE MIGHTY. ūüėÉ

Many of you in the Spina Bifida / Disability / Special Needs circles may understand what a big deal this is for me as a writer, blogger, and activist. Heck, I know many of you, like me, are HUGE FANS of this site and the stories they share!

I am geeking out, feeling humbled and honored.

And yes. I am feeling ALL the feels.

Please, pretty please with chocolate and caramel and sprinkles and espresso on top-- read my article, which was originally published on Holdin' Out for a Hero!

http://themighty.com/2015/08/to-the-women-who-say-my-shoes-are-killing-me/

Also if you feel inclined to leave a comment on the article, it would mean a lot to me. I'd love to see this conversation about shoes for women-- and men-- with different needs continue.

And, of course, if you could SHARE this, it would be so awesome!!

Thank you all SO MUCH for your continued support and love. ūüėć

I want to begin a trend called #Swag4Good . We get a lot of great but often excessive stuff at #events   & #conferences. Why not #donate   it to a #socialgood   #cause ? 

Think of the IMPACT our oversized T-shirts, packaged toys, and non-perishable snacks could have!

Last week I published an honest if controversial post on Holdin' Out for a Hero regarding an E-mail I received from a stranger. 

The post is NOT meant to be my actual response to her, but rather a painstaking look at my own feelings about it. 

Faces of Spina Bifida, the award-winning, national online magazine runby my dear friend +Alyson Flynn, has syndicated my post on their site this week. 

I am truly humbled and grateful to Alyson for always supporting me in my efforts to raise awareness, and really admire and respect her platform, which is a great resource to many looking to learn more about SB, and to connect to people and information related to it:

This is a topic I've had on my backburner for quite a while. It took a LOT out of me to write this.

The phrase is often used to mean shoes are uncomfortable. For me, however, it highlights a trivial yet painful aspect of living as a girl with spina bifida.

Watching NOW: G+ Hangout titled "The Latino Presence in American Art," featuring 2 of my best friends, +Elianne Ramos AKA ergeekgoddess and +Edwin Gil!

#art   #arte   #american   #hangout   #Latino   #Latinos   #Hispanic   #Hispanics   #LatinAmerica   #LatinAmerican  
 
Art, as a means of expression, is at the center of cultural participation in community life. In a country as complex and diverse as this one, preserving the artistic heritage and history of a people is not an easy endeavor. Much of the responsibility for keeping this cultural heritage alive falls under the leadership of the artists, curators, organizations and stakeholders.
The start of Hispanic Heritage Month is a perfect opportunity to examine the definition of ‚ÄúLatino‚ÄĚ Art, the importance of highlighting artists of Latino descent, the work that different organizations are doing in this area as well as art‚Äôs role in mobilizing communities into social action. Join this important conversation on Tuesday at 7 pm ET.

MY GUESTS:
 
- Adriana Gallego, Deputy Director, National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC)
 
- Edwin Gil, Artist and social activist
 
- Taina Caragol, Curator for Latino Art at the National Portrait Gallery
 
- Estuardo Rodriguez, Executive Director at Friends of the National Museum of the American LatinoÔĽŅ
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Elianne Ramos AKA ergeekgoddess. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
