Confidence is hard when you live with disability. We are people with disabilities, too, so we get it.
How can I be confident when the world wasn’t made for me?
We have lived many years struggling with this question in all aspects of our lives:
In a word: everything. Being confident helps in all these aspects. But how can we build confidence? In our years of living with our disabilities, we have found that the highlights of our lives often correspond to our most active moments. The more we move, the happier we are. So we wanted to share our solution with you.
We believe the 2 best ways to build confidence are:
- Playing Sports
So why not do both at the same time? Traveling and playing sports can truly make this world accessible.
“A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats”
We believe that if when you play sports you are living by example. You not only build your confidence in yourself, but in those around you, too. You are showing the world how strong you are, and how you embrace your disability and thus, life.
When you travel, you are a testimony to those around you that no disability will hold you back. Sharing your testimony with the world is best done through action. For example, rolling through a plaza in your wheelchair in the middle of a busy market in a foreign country delivers this message more powerfully than words ever could.
The Solution: Travel + Sports
By traveling and playing sports, you can truly make the world more accessible.
- First, we provide travel consulting so you can be prepared for your trip. We share our best ideas on making travel comfortable so you can have peace of mind. We also share what to do when things go wrong.
- Second, we connect you with a network of like-minded athletes with disabilities globally. We believe in this cultural exchange you can learn best practices from each other.
- Third, we bring it all together. You then become an ambassador for our program, promoting our mission to the world.
We believe you can make the world accessible by traveling and playing sports.
