I come from Sierra Leone in West Africa and we didn’t have a way to serve people with developmental disabilities. We did not have a great way to give them a meaningful life. It was all up to the family members. People also had superstitions. I said to myself, that they have rights too. When I came to the US I was thrilled to see the services that are offered to individuals that are developmental disabled. I am grateful to be able to work in this field. I am also happy to be able to bring the things I learn back home. I feel like I am able to contribute when I go home and help people build better connections.
