“When I think about my family everyone felt powerless and went into denial. It was very hard for my family to accept that I was disabled, because accepting that I’m disabled, would be accepting all the financial burden.”

“As disabled people, we need to do more, stop waiting for able bodied people in power to give us power. We need to take our power”.

An inspirational conversation by  intellectuals from UCT, tell of the challenges that come with their disability and how they have turned their challenges to Abilities.
