Unpacking my backpack

I think about privilege a lot. Different types of privilege.

And I hope that this is not solely because I am an individual who lives in, has to thrive in, and grew up in a world where, in order to succeed, I had to be aware of my own lack of able-bodied privilege and how to compensate for it.

I hope, frankly, that had I not been born with a disability, I would still be aware of my own privileges, and as a result, considerate, mindful, and compassionate towards the injustices and microaggressions that others face, regardless of my own struggles.
