Meeting the "Father of the ADA"
“Early on in my career when volunteering for the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities statewide conference, I had the amazing opportunity of meeting the 'father of the ADA', Justin Dart. I was tasked to pick him (the keynote speaker) up from the airport and drive him to the hotel. We had a pleasant conversation in the car and he even asked me to help him translate a phrase in Spanish for his speech - 'We shall overcome!'. I felt so proud when he gave his speech and ended with 'Juntos Venceremos!'".
