    Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.
    (I hope you will consider also tweeting a link with the #BADD2013 hashtag, so more people will connect with you.)

    I’m so pleased you found Blogging Against Disablism Day. I’ve been lurking around here for the last week thinking, “How can I point her towards BADD without making it an obvious and annoying plug?”

    Thank you so much for contributing and the very best of luck with your future career!

    So many of these things I wish people had told me going into college. Just an all around excellent post – glad to ‘meet’ you! Wishing you lots of luck on your PhD

    This: “5) If you have a chronic illness talk to your faculty. I got screwed over in my final year of undergrad because I was suffering from chronic migraines and was really struggling to keep my head above water, it cost me in my grades and could have (probably) been prevented had I been able to advocate better for myself.”
    This was me in undergrad, except I had depression and an infection and other stuff.
    Good luck in your PHD program. I’m blind and working on my masters degree right now. Do you have a screen reader? Do you know about bookshare and learning ally, sites with electronic books for blind/visually impaired people?
