I Deserve To Hold Space As I Am with Nahyr Ruiz (Part 2)

Phenomenal Disabilities With Tree Lowe

17-01-2023 • 1 hr 22 mins

As a mother, wife, dance teacher, recent M.F.A. graduate, from the neurodiversity community, Nahyr Ruiz relates so well to it all. She is also a strong representation of BIPOC disabled women wearing multiple hats in life. Nahyr understands living a fruitful life with various invisible disabilities while navigating with them as a mother and wife. However, she never saw them as a stumbling block while having her three children. Meanwhile, many of the disabled community encounter ableism from various other communities about their invisible disabilities. Nahyr feels it is important for everyone to suppress criticisms, be more informed with a better sense of compassion. More and importantly, stop creating ableism and drama over disabilities because it is not up to anyone to participate in as entertainment relief, or cast stones.

"Your limitation is what you put on yourself. Disability is not limitation at all. Sooooo... stop hanging hung up on it!"
