Outspoken / Able / Driven
Grace Stratton, doesn’t pull any punches. Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at a year old, Grace has been navigating life in a wheelchair for nineteen years, but her disability isn’t the story, what she’s done with it is. At sixteen Grace built a website from her hospital bed while she was in recovery from surgery, that site led her to discover that in today’s landscape; what made her different was what gave her power to succeed, in whatever fields she chose.
Three years after building that website, this statement is still true. Grace defined her disability for herself, in a way which for the most part defies social convention, Grace saw her disability as something that would strengthen her in industry and as a person.
Grace believes that all diversities hold this same strength, and that this should be self evident.
