My name is Jonathan Krieger and I have cerebral palsy. I know what you're thinking. What makes him so special in comparison to anyone else with a disability? I would have to say it is my wide range of experiences. I have been part of small communities my whole life but that does not mean my life experiences have not molded and changed my life path over the years.
I have navigated the special education system multiple times helping a wide range of individuals along the way. I attended Grand Valley State University and received my bachelors' degrees in Psychology and Nonprofit Administration. Having a physical disability can make attending college a very difficult and overwhelming experience but I was able to overcome those barriers as well. I have also been involved in state and federal disability related programs for many years and have learned how to navigate the system.
No star is lost once we have seen, We always may be what we might have been.
