About the Book

Living Proof is a real, insightful, honest, and yet, strongly informative story of how a young woman’s personal experiences through the U.S. public education system equipped her with the knowledge and tools that would unknowingly lead her later in life to recognize an issue of discrimination, resulting in the dissonance between the disabled and general populations. Where it has now lead her to embark on the road of sharing her story with YOU by writing this book to promote more awareness in regard to the lack of inclusiveness. From an early age, as she dealt with her “physical” disability, specifically visual impairment, she always had to adapt to each new situation as it came. For the most part, she remained to keep herself optimistic and live her life as ordinarily as possible. This book provides an original module that teaches and suggests how one can begin to bridge the gap, at any time, in reaching inclusiveness. It centers on the importance of self-advocacy through the importance of self-awareness. Foreseen as anything but ordinary to most, Living Proof gives way for individuals with and without disabilities to see how one’s life is just as ordinary as another even if it may not seem like it. Currently as an entrepreneur, Ms. Cabrera is a dedicated disability consultant and life coach, compassionately bringing forth techniques and understanding to both the disabled and general populations in reaching inclusiveness on a personal and professional level.

About the Author

A Disability Consultant & Life Coach, cultivating a path for awareness and recognition of an undermined population by overcoming adversity within a systemic society. Aiming to set-forth a new foundation of inclusiveness, Ms. Cabrera seeks to bridge the gap between both disabled and general populations by recognizing self-awareness as a main component to bring about self-advocacy on a larger scale. Ms. Cabrera is a dynamic individual who’s been driven by narrow-mindedness and motivated by personal experiences; convincing her of the ever growing importance to share her story and perspective with the world. Not choosing to allow any setback or obstacle to override her goals, she can only hope her passion of helping others is only exemplified. And through her story, the willingness for understanding one another may be considered, learned and sought; so that all become more aware of the distinctions presented in this book.
