My name is Daniella Jade Lowe and I am an aspiring Journalist. In fact Journalism and Politics are my passion. I have been part of many Journalism opportunities and projects. For example, I’ve represented Bermuda at the London 2012 Paralympics as a reporter for Paralympian Jessica Lewis. Check out the link to my Facebook page below!
I am very committed to whatever I do. I show initiative. I am good at planning projects and getting them done in a timely manner.
Another aspiration that I have is Politics. I aspire to be a Disability Advocate. As a Disability Advocate, I will advocate for their rights while teaching them how to empower themselves. I’ve even considered marketing myself as an accessibility consultant. I can help businesses in creating plans to help people with special needs navigate the towns, city’s etc.
In relation to being an accessibility consultant, I’ve been advised to take up Social Work as another course, which may help me in this.
Access consultants provide professional advice on how to develop inclusive environments in accordance with the Equality Act 2010. They help to reinforce the law.
Wheelchair Accessibility and mobility issues are just some of the problems that access consultants look at and try to solve. Access alleviates the amount of limitations and restrictions on wheelchair users. Failing to ensure wheelchair accessibility is neglecting to provide reasonable adjustments. It is like functioning in dysfunction. Access Rating is a prime example of what access consultants do.
Proposal for Access Consultancy
I am writing regarding your requirement for delivery of confidence building/ awareness workshops.
Currently I help businesses in creating plans to help people with special needs navigate the towns and cities, and I feel this puts me in a position to deliver such workshops.
I have attached my proposal which I believe would meet your requirements.
I look forward to hearing from you.
My name is Daniella Jade Lowe. I have a disability. It doesn’t completely define me; it just enhances me in a way which differentiates and strengthens me. My disability should be viewed as an ability: to see the world in a different way. I am an Accessibility Consultant. I help businesses in creating plans to help people with special needs navigate the towns, cities etc. I charge $75 for my services as an Accessibility Consultant.
As a wheelchair user, I have advocated for Wheelchair Accessibility in Bermuda, by writing various articles for numerous publications on the subject. I also have a blog where I also write about various disability related issues.
During Middle School and High School, I used a Garaventa StairTrac to navigate the school for classes.
In fact, one of the reasons why I pursued further education and started my career in England was due to Wheelchair Accessibility. During College, I became the Disability Officer for the Students’ Union and I advocated for the students with disabilities.
On July 27, 2007, I was invited by former Premier of Bermuda Dr. Ewart Brown for a ‘Brown Bag Lunch’ to discuss issues like Wheelchair Accessibility amongst other things. I have also been sporadically involved with WindReach since I was young.
Anything to be an agent of change, especially in the lives of those with special needs. DECISIONS! DECISIONS! I want to make a difference in my lifetime and generation.
