YouTube Channel Live – “Shower Talk with Ali”

YOUTUBE CHANNEL LINK: https://www.youtube.com/c/QuirkyQuad_Ali

This has been a project near and dear to my heart that I have been working on for the better part of a year, but projects have just been popping up left and there never really seemed to be a right time to take the leap. So, I decided weeks ago to just dive right in as they say (figuratively of course because I already took the physical dive 12 years ago;) – and, I certainly don’t have any desire to do that again!

I am incredibly humbled, honored, and proud to announce the launch of my new YouTube channel called

“Shower Talk with Ali – Where No Topic is Limit”

To complement my website and my writing I appreciate many people love to watch videos. In light of this, I’ve created this YouTube channel with the sole focus of approaching and normalizing uncomfortable topics in my life and the disability world so that folks from all walks of life can understand what many of us go through on a daily basis. This is not a channel just about inspiration, but really diving into understanding some of what many of us with disabilities live through each and every moment of our lives.

In the spirit of who I am I have approach many topics through the lens of dark humor, determination, and sheer grit at times. No matter what situation I may me dealing with in life I always seem to find the comedy behind every experience my life.

I do hope you enjoy, follow my channel, like, subscribe, and comment so that I might be able to make videos on what you are all interested in! This channel is by no means just for people with disabilities, but for EVERYONE may just be curious and loves to learn about topics that are very unfamiliar in your own life.

Introduction to My YouTube Channel:

Sabrina’s Adaptive Beach Days – Turning Dreams into Action

Thank you Christopher Reeve Foundation for allowing me to be a guest blogger for your incredible organization again!

In this article I feature one of my dear friends Sabrina Cohen who is simply taking over the world in Florida in creating an adaptive beach program and so much more for individuals with disabilities!

A Personal Story of Equality, Equity, and Chinese Shootings!

I am incredibly honored to have Billion Strong, an identity and empowerment organization designed to bring millions of voices of persons with disabilities together. I met Debra Ruh, Founder and Executive Chair of Billion Strong and CEO of Ruh Global IMPACT in the last year. She is a light in so many people’s lives, is incredibly bright, smart, and cares intensely about giving voice to people with disabilities around the world.

Debra invited me to be Secretary of the Board for Billion Strong and it is my distinct honor to serve this incredible global organization advancing disability initiatives.

There is a BIG difference between Equality and Equity, and while they are really important for those of us with disabilities because one size does not fit all in many aspects of our lives, it’s also important to appreciate the progress we’ve made in first world countries on this front. It’s imperative we continue to push for systemic change, but while we do so we need to stop and think critically about the unbelievable sacrifices the generations before us put forward in order to allow many of us to have the freedom to continue to fight for change!

ENJOY!
