Feel Good Sunday: Disabled? Not Your Inspiration

Meet Stella Young, the hilarious comedian and journalist who refuses to be reduced to a mere inspiration for others just because she uses a wheelchair. In her TED Talk, Young takes on society’s tendency to turn disabled people into “inspiration porn” and challenges us to view them as complex individuals with their own unique experiences and personalities. With wit and charm, Young breaks down the misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding disability, urging us to see disabled people as they truly are: human beings with their own strengths, weaknesses, and quirks. Don’t miss this eye-opening talk that will challenge your perceptions and leave you laughing out loud. Watch it now on TED.
