DO-IT Ambassador Profile


My name is Nadira and I'm a DO-IT Ambassador. I go to Highline Community College and plan to transfer to the University of Washington to get my bachelor's degree in psychology. However, at the moment I'm really not sure what kind of career I want to get into. Some of my hobbies are music, Internet, poetry, and laughing.

My disability is mobility impairment. I use a wheelchair to get around twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. I believe that people's attitudes toward wheelchair users really need to change. We should not be treated differently from other people because we are not different. I am open-minded, friendly, humorous, religious, sensitive, and all the other good stuff! I think I should also mention at least one bad quality about me--I am a big procrastinator--but I'm working towards changing this behavior.

My purpose in life is to help people in any way I can. I think we humans need to be very nice to each other because the environment that surrounds us is continually giving us pain and suffering. The only remedy for it is to be nice to each other. I have learned a lot by being in the DO-IT program. DO-IT is the best teacher that I have ever had. Finally, my motto in life is: Treat others the way you want to be treated.
