My name is Shawn, and I'm an Ambassador for the DO-IT program. I'm 18-years-old and from Washington. My disability isn't known but we think it might have to do with the Salla disease. Salla affects how you move and talk. I use a wheelchair to get around and I also use a computer because I can't write very well.

I'm currently a freshmen at Big Bend Community College in Washington. I'm going to major in computer science, but I might change later to computer applications. I hope to either own a computer business or write computer programs. This past summer I was a DO-IT Intern for the annual Summer Study program. It was my first job so I learned how to get things done diligently. I also learned how hard the DO-IT staff and the Interns had to work together to run the camp effectively, but overall, I had a blast. My hobbies are reading, computers, listening to music, and just hanging around.
