Kris is an active member of the community. She makes sure to have a clear understanding of what each candidate represents and gets out and votes during election season. She is a self-advocate, something she’s been passionate about since she was bullied in high school. Because of her experience, she wanted to make bookmarks that encourage respect. When she is not advocating, Kris works at Allianz, helping with various tasks around the office.
Michael is a performer at heart. He has worked at Anodyne Artist Company for the past few years, participating in various shows. Although performing is his passion, he makes sure to get out and advocate for individuals with disabilities. For example, Michael has gone to an elementary school in Plymouth to explain to children what it means to have a disability. He hopes that through acting and volunteering, he can educate people and eliminate the stigma around having a disability.
