Episode 269 – “We’re Not Allowed To Talk About Disability, Unless it’s Among Ourselves” – w/ Jessica Johnson

 

On this episode, I sit down with Jessica Johnson, a 31 year old black woman with CP, doing her clinical residency to become a counselor in the state of Virginia.  We shine a light on ableism in her field, what it feels like to be the only disabled person in the room, trying to be disabled at work, independence, blackness and disability + so much more.  You’ll fall in love with her just like I did. Enjoy!
