Thirty-two years ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities, was passed. To commemorate ADA, July is Disability Pride Month.
This week we’re spotlighting Kemi Yemi-Ese
, a therapist, visual artist and disability rights advocate based in Austin, Texas. Her paintings
focus on her experiences living with a disability, and are inspired by her Nigerian heritage. As a licensed professional counselor and certified rehabilitation specialist, Yemi-Ese uses expressionistic interventions and other methodologies to help clients struggling with anxiety, trauma, and thought disorders.
