In this episode I sit down with a good friend of mine to discuss his physical disability and how it has impacted his life. He was born with a rare disorder that leads to the connective tissue in the joints to harden making it very difficult for him to perform certain daily tasks among other things. Jordan will provide more insight on this throughout this episode. I really enjoy Jordan's perspective and I especially appreciate his sense of humor that is interweaved into everything he does.

This week I had the privilege to interview Deserae Turner. Des was shot and left for dead by who she thought were "close friends" near a canal in Smithfield utah almost 4 years ago. She was found 8 or so hours later and immediately rushed to the hospital where she would stay for the next 60 days recovering and having multiple surgeries to help her brain as it was swelling from the trauma caused by the bullet entering her skull. She was in a coma for the first couple of weeks and was in excruciating pain from all of this. The unthinkable act committed by these teenagers has had a very dramatic impact on the Turner family and I still have a hard time believing that someone could do something like this. With that being said, Des has a very positive outlook and continues to find things to do that make her happy. I am excited for you to listen to her as she just gives a glimpse into what life has been like for her since the incident.

In this episode I sit down with a good friend of mine Sachin. Sachin moved to the US at the age of 17 to begin his studies at Utah State University. When he first moved to the US he relied on others to help him as he was unaware of the tools and strategies used by other successful blind people. Once he was introduced to the National Federation of the Blind he began to interact and network with blind people who had tools,  technology and strategies that afforded them opportunities to achieve success and because of that introduction Sachin would undergo quite a transformation. There were some very difficult times for Sachin as he struggled through his undergrad but he eventually figured things out and would become very successful.
