A: On YouTube @Daniellability or Instagram @Daniellability
My name is Danielle. I’m 29 years old, and I have Spina Bifida. I started my YouTube channel “Daniellability” and Instagram account @daniellability because I’m extremely passionate about raising awareness and opening up conversations surrounding disabilities. I want people to understand that they don’t need to shy away from or be uncomfortable around disabilities. I would also like to see disabilities included in conversations regarding diversity – in Hollywood, in modeling, in fashion, in storytelling, etc. When I was growing up, I rarely (if ever) saw anyone who looked like me in the movies, on the television, or in magazines. If I did, it was typically in a sad and depressing way. It’s time that the world sees people with disabilities as people who can be fashionable, interesting, vibrant, and important parts of society. I would also like to encourage fellow wheelchair users to be brave, innovative, and live life to the fullest. That includes showing parents of children with disabilities that their child can not only survive but THRIVE if given the proper tools.
Danielle is playing such an important role. She is a role model to all wheelchair users. She is brave, fashionable, and living life to the fullest!
