Stories That Inspire Us with Katie Selby - 02.10.24

Stories That Inspire Us welcomed to today’s podcast, Saturday, February 10, 2024, sKatie Selby.  Katie is a young lady with a language impairment and learning disabilities. She was diagnosed with a language impairment at the age of three and with learning disabilities at the age of five.  As Katie eloquently describes, she is the only person in her immediate and extended family who lives with a disability. 

She has a heart of gold and her sincerity to share with others is inspiring to say the least.  Her “ability” to help others to advocate for themselves led her to become a paraprofessionals and work with elementary school children with disabilities.  

Katie may have struggled but she didn’t let that stop her!  She learned self-advocacy skills and it is not surprising that Katie excelled where others thought she would fail.  She admits it was difficult at times; but know this about Katie:  her mission is to empower and engage individuals to be an advocate for themselves and to have the power to lead their educational and life journeys.  No doubt she has and will continue to do so!
