Hello and welcome to We Are You, a blog about personal empowerment and transformation.
My name is Doug Bialach, and I’m the site moderator. I’m also a career professional specializing in digital hardware, content delivery, systems integration, and Internet tools. I’m a family man and I have a disability. I’m legally blind in both of my eyes.
In this live journal, I seek to convey information to my peers and the public-at-large about the daily experiences of disabled persons. It is my hope that in sharing my own life experiences, the whole of the community can become more empowered; particularly as it relates to higher education and employability.
At the behest of family, colleagues and friends, I will use my personal journeys as an able person living with a disability to tell my story and the story of others, while also providing a useful dialogue that informs of triumphs and challenges beyond conventional wisdom associated with the term “Disability.”
You are us. We are you too.are not that different from everyone else.
