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.
This leads us to our Extend-The-Question conversation, What actions have others taken to increase your confidence with your CP? Please share your answers in the comments!
Finally, don’t forget our next Google Hangout, April 20th!
Have a great week, #CPChatNow fam!
