Audrie Meraki

Advocate of and for Individuals with Disabilities / Young Adult Representative
Spokane, WA

I’m very community oriented; I want to see people step into their potential rather than constantly wondering, what if. I’m dedicated to lifting up the morale/confidence of the disability community, for more people with disabilities to say: “Yes, I can do that no problem.” We were provided voices to be heard, not to be quiet. If we continue to play victim in our own lives, then we won’t be living the lives we want but rather the lives we feared.
