Day 389


The best inventions of today are not necessarily the most complicated but they have changed the way we live forever – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 7: 23 PM on day 389 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself pancakes with coconut and sugar  for breakfast, publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – listen to music – I LOVE Adam Lambert‘s music, I listened to If I Had You and For Your Entertainment about a HUNDRED times –feed myself yoghurt for lunch, go to physiotherapy, watch TV and feed myself rice and curry for dinner.

As you know I am not one to do something just because other people are doing it but after reading A thank you to Steve Jobs from a special needs mom on Love That Max and seeing how the Ipad app, Proloquo2Go, has helped Ellen (@lovethatmax) and her son, Max, communicate – Max has a lot to say but his speech is affected as a result of Cerebral Palsy – I feel compelled to say RIP Steve Jobs and thank you for creating the Ipad which has made a tremendous difference in the lives of those who have special needs. Take a look at the video below to see how Max uses the Ipad to talk to those around him:

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. http://bit.ly/hC7vOu

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. Nisha, it’s so good of you to join in and express gratitude for Steve. What he did impacted the lives of countless people, yet so many don’t know how much he helped kids like mine.

    Keep up the great work you do!!!
