Added Challenges: The –Ism Youth Files

Speaking Our Truths: The –Ism Youth Files Podcast

“I was born with several physical and mental disabilities, including autism. And because of that, I always struggled to fit in and I experienced depression. One of my teachers once said, “every generation has a turning point.” For my generation, it was the covid-19 pandemic.  It forced us to adapt and make changes we might not have made.” – Jenell Theobald

Host Jenell Theobald discusses the challenges of disability during and after the pandemic as youth returned to school, and how that compounded issues in the pandemic. She speaks from personal experience and also brings in other youth that have similar challenges.
