#CPChatNow Recap- 4-12-2017

A member getting married, LEGO’s newest efforts at highlighting disability, and actions by others to increase member’s confidence were all topics on last week’s #CPChatNow Twitter chat.  I am Interim Co-Host, Devin Axtman, and I will be taking you along on this week’s recap.  The only issue is, there were too many good Tweets to include!

#CPChatNow opened with a joyous start as regular, Jen Conventry, announced she had recently been married:

Talk next turned to LEGO’s efforts at highlighting disability issues and accessibility.  It is great to see more mainstream companies highlighting disability in a positive way.

Dave pointed out that LEGO has also released a wheelchair ramp to go along with their characters who use wheelchairs. Bravo, LEGO!

Finally, #CPChatNow Co-Host, Zachary Fenell, posted a question that sparked conversation.  Zach asked whether people get offended if their CP prevents them from being considered to do something by others.

#CPChatNow regular, Maysoon Zayid, tweeted this has happened numerous times throughout her TV career.

Zach shared a powerful story of his cousin allowing him to hold a baby and how that totally awakened his confidence.

  1. Another building block for my own confidence came from a conversation with my friend Rob. At the time I was using eHarmony and I mentioned CP in my profile. Rob’s remarks helped give me the encouragement to remove the mention without feeling I was duping matches.
