College Life After SCI

Are there any members of the SCI that have the dreams of going to College/pursuing higher education after their injury? If so, let's talk about it! My name is Ian and I am a current Sophomore at the University of Miami. I am currently studying neuroscience and I have the hopes of either attending law or medical school. Although college can be intimidating, it is not impossible! I have had to navigate through countless roadblocks on my road to pursuing higher education and I want to use my personal experience to help other people just like me achieve their goals. Please spread the word to other ambitious SCI survivors!

    Hi Ian,

    Congrats on pursuing your goals! I attended college, grad school, and law school - you're right, we can definitely achieve our dreams in higher education and in our careers! After law school I practiced law in in Miami for a year before moving to upstate New York to run a disability rights advocacy team. Now I practice law helping crime victims in New York and I love it. 

    Like Ian, I would be happy to discuss how to pursue higher education or other goals. There are far too many stereotypes about people with disabilities not being able to do anything when, in fact, we can do so much.
