Day 301

Sometimes you have to put yourself out there even at your own risk – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 7: 45 PM on day 301 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, watch TV, feed myself bananas for breakfast, submit my story to our community’s website – my parents are going to murder me (see why below) – watch TV, feed myself rice and curry lunch, join Linkedin, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck –watch some more TV, feed myself Spaghetti bolognaise for dinner – I made a big mess since I’m only recently getting used to this fork and knife thing but hey what is life without a mess 🙂 – and brush my teeth once.

As you know I believe that if what you’re doing isn’t working you should do something different which is why although I knew that my family wouldn’t be pleased – they think asking for donations is equivalent to begging – I emailed our community’s website and asked them to feature my story. Are you willing to put yourself out there as long as you are not in the line of fire?

Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at

If you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing.

Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.

Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!

  1. The only way to live fully is to get excited, take reasonable risks, and put it out there. Have you considered that you live more fully and truly than most people who don’t have your disability and challenges?
