  • Day 21 of #31DaysofSMA: Making the World a Better Place for People With Disabilities

    Posted by jessie-madrigal-fletcher on August 22, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Jasmine West is 28 years old and lives in England. She drives her wheelchair-accessible vehicle and likes to think of herself as a confident and independent woman. She employs a team of carers who assist her with daily living, and who are all her best friends. Jasmine describes herself as a “crazy cat lady” and dreams of opening a cat café — an accessible one, of course.

    “I use my Instagram page to share my life, including the good, the bad, and the ugly. By doing this, I have met and advocated for lots of different people, and will continue to do so until the world is a better place for disabled people.

    Jasmine, you are the coolest cat lady!

    Now back to our SMA community, how do you feel about advocating?

    Love that Jasmine has a team of carers she gets along with well! That’s so hard to find and yet such an important aspect of our well-being.
