Disability Pride Week CanDo-er: Kristin Hayes

Kristin Hayes is a blogger, speech pathologist, and anti-ableism advocate. Her blog, Sand In My Wheels, is dedicated to providing curated and personalized accessible itineraries. Kristin is a true ‘CanDo-er' as she is committed to “living life that is often in contradiction to society’s ideas and assumptions about what [her] life is or should be!”.

“For me, disability pride month is about honouring our rich history of relentless advocacy in the face of glaring ignorance and prejudice; acknowledging our unique experiences that often require tremendous patience, problem solving skills and an ability to adapt; celebrating the beauty and innovation that comes from our differences; and recognition that society as a whole has a responsibility to care about and support inclusion and disability rights”.
