Different Ability™ Podcast Season 2 Episode 62
In today’s episode you will hear some pretty incredible stories from my guest Shannon’s life! Shannon, like many, struggled as a child and never was formally diagnosed with any sort of learning disability. As you could maybe guess, of course, she fell through the cracks and struggled through school. What I love is she truly believes that your qualities and values are your identity, not your “disability”. Your disability doesn’t define you!
” Your Qualities and Values are your identity ”
Shannon opens my eyes and shares with me about learning how she has synesthesia. There’s many types of synesthesia and she shares of few of them on today’s episode. What is synesthesia? Well you need to listen in to today’s episode to learn more from Shannon! Synesthesia is truly mind blowing to me and so interesting to learn more about! Again, Shannon shares that she has synesthesia but that doesn’t define who she really is… it’s something she has! Her qualities and values in life are what make up her identity.
