Day 29 of #31DaysofSMA: We May Have SMA, but We Are People Just Like You
Keisha and Kea Molina are identical twin sisters with SMA and country music singers/songwriters. They share their story about acceptance, identity, and fighting to be seen in a world that often dismisses disabled people. Through their music, they hope to make others feel less alone and deflect stigmas about disability.
Here’s an excerpt, “Our first song written and made into a music video is to show the world that we have needs like anyone else: to be wanted, to be loved, and to know what that’s like. For others like us, it’s difficult to find someone who sees us as normal or wants to get to know us despite our disability. But we are normal and we feel love, hurt, sadness, and happiness, too. We are people just like you!”
Do you have any takeaways from this story? Can you relate to feeling unseen?
