This morning I shared this story during the International Virtual Women’s Chamber of Commerce open house and thought I would share it here too.
While taking a pre-employment program for people with disabilities, the instructors were scrambling to keep busy. One day the computer instructor introduced me to basic HTML. I gobbled it up! I soon realized that, although I grew up in silence, I now had a way to communicate with the world. That realization was so exciting, so liberating!
