Hey guys I know it’s been awhile. Thankfully Ash has been posting. I will be posting consistently now it will not just be about disabilities. I will be browsing my topics. I’ve currently been working on projects and I can’t wait to tell about it! How would guys feel if I started a vlog? Just to add a fresh perspective. Lot’s of things have happened since I’ve last written. It’s a new chapter and new journey I can’t wait for you guys to come along on this journey with me!



Friends On Wheels With A New Perspective

Hey guys! Hope your Friday is going well. Sorry for the lack of content. I’m trying to brainstorm ideas so that I am able to bring you more new and consistent content, what would you like me to talk about? It doesn’t just have to be about disabilities. It can be about anything, anything that inspires you. Tell your story, your testimony, if you are interested please inbox me on our Facebook page Friends On Wheels (Cerebral Palsy). If you know anyone that may be interested in being a featured blogger please let me know. I want to bring life back into the blog. We need a fresh perspective. We started this blog for disabilities, but it’s for anyone who feels like they have a story to tell.

You have unique story tell it! Come join us!

Twitter is probably the easiest way to contact me EbonyWOfficial ! Ashley and I appreciate the support we have received over time. Help us continue to spread awareness across all platforms and industries. People with disabilities deserve a voice! We need your help! Are you in? Until next time!



Building A Platform 

Have you ever helped someone with even realizing it? We all have our angels that watch over us, guiding us to do things we never thought were possible before. Well a few months ago I was down in the dumps because I couldn’t find a job. I felt hopeless, stagnant at times until one day realized I didn’t have to take the rejection of applying for jobs anymore . I could create my own ventures. So I started Friends On Wheelz with my best Ashley. We want to raise awareness about Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities. My main goal is to start a dialogue so that having a disability is not a barrier, rather a gateway to creating change. Acting and modeling is one way I’m creating my platform. 

Funny I’ve always said I was going to be a lawyer when I first entered college or so I thought. God said”That’s not your path, I have a different one. Follow mine my plan is greater.” Struggling I quickly realized this wasn’t my path. Well not that it wasn’t my path it was just that I would advocate in a different way. So I took year off to figure out what I wanted to do. I changed my major to Communication which was the perfect fit for me. I could still help others and use my creative side to do it. Now I’m using the skills I’ve learned to advocate for myself and others as well. My confidence has gone way up,hearing others tell me that my story has inspired them. It’s really others who inspire me to continue on my path creating change and making diffference in others lives whether it be disabled or able bodied.

Making Assumptions 

It’s funny when you have a disability others think it has to be a physical one. I recently read a story about a woman parking in handicap spot. A person had left a nasty note saying it was “unethical” for her to park in a space because she wasn’t handicapped. What does being handicapped mean? It’s more than a physical condition. Don’t assume you know what someone is going through. It really disgusted me that people could be so rude to this woman. She was a veteran who fought in Iraq. She may not be physically impaired, but the emotional scars we will never understand what she went through.
 My point is never assume you know someone’s situation. Next time you see someone who’s physically able in a handicapped parking spot remember that disabilities are not always physical.

Ignorance Is NOT Bliss

Hey! It’s Eb and lately I’ve been really annoyed with people. Ignorance is definitely not bliss and assuming is not the way. In my experience adults seem to be the ones that are the most offensive. Most have nothing but good intentions and others are just blissfully ignorant. That’s not ok. I do my best to inform others about my disability. I think it’s a two way street. People should take the time to read and learn about others issues different from their own. This doesn’t just apply to the disabled community. Taking the time to learn about other cultures and attempting to see the world through others perspectives. People tend to make veiled assumptions about groups of people without getting to know them or their stories. And that can be dangerous it drives people apart rather than pulling them together. Now I don’t want to get all preachy, but something must be done we must come together. Especially in the climate we’re living in today. I just want to spread awareness. A lot of people may not read my blogs, but I write this in the hopes that I at least make a difference in one persons life. Ashley and I started this blog to raise awareness about disabilities. It’s so much more than that it’s about sharing our testimony and encouraging others to do the same. I definitely appreciate all the love and support we have received over this past year. I hope you continue reading our journey. Until next time….drop by our Facebook page Friends on Wheel(Cerebral Palsy)
