When I became disabled in grad school, I knew only one other disabled student. Wait, aren’t we more than 25% of the U.S. population? Where are the disabled scientists? I soon found out, however, that STEM and academia create unique challenges for disabled scientists and engineers, often pushing us out altogether. So, I created this piece in the hope that one day all these barriers are finally torn down and the disabled scientists that come after me can feel proud of their identities.
