Celebrating our diverse disability lived experiences through the power of community

Diversability is an award-winning movement to rebrand disability through the power of community.

Christalle Takes Over Diversability's Instagram

In case you missed it, we have been hosting a series of Instagram takeovers, featuring members of our community. Christalle just finished her takeover and took the time to answer a few more questions for us.

What is your name? Christalle Bodiford

Where are you from? I’m originally from Dothan, Alabama, but I’ve also lived in Georgia and California. I currently live in Austin, TX.

Why did you choose to participate in your takeover? I’ve learned so much from Diversability, and I wanted to share my perspective in hopes of helping others learn more about epilepsy, which many consider to be an invisible disability.

What is something you wanted to share but didn’t get to during your takeover? This month I’m participating in Living Well With Epilepsy’s epilepsy blog relay. Follow along at @LivingWellWithEpilepsy on Instagram or visit livingwellwithepilepsy.com to learn more about epilepsy from different perspectives.

What does Diversability mean to you? Sharing perspectives of differently abled people to educate and spread awareness in an abled world.
