Fashion Friday - Jessica Tambor

For this week's Fashion Friday, I'm excited to introduce you to my friend Jessica Tambor! Jessica and I went to school together and she was one of the top students in our class. She continues to be very active and has accomplished so much already. Here is her story in her own words:

Jessica is wearing the Ocean Lace Flex Bracelet
"My name is Jessica Tambor. I live in Queens, NY and I have a Spinal Cord Injury. I have a trach to breathe and I use a power wheelchair to get around, but that doesn’t stop me. I am very active. I go out with my friends, volunteer, have a part time job, and have my teaching license in elementary education and special education.  
My greatest accomplishments so far are graduating with a Master’s Degree, dorming at college when I was going for my Undergraduate degree, and having a part-time job at the 'Y'. 
This project is important to me because people with Diverse Abilities are under-represented in media. Also, a lot of times able bodied actors play disabled characters on TV and in movies. I think that people with disabilities should be considered for those roles.  This project can help show what people with Diverse Abilities can do. I would like for people with Diverse Abilities to be models in magazine ads, newspaper ads, and in fashion commercials. I would also like to see them on fashion runways. Society has to see people with disabilities not just as “inspirational”, but as people who are very capable of working, having families, going out and having fun, having active lives, and adults that can make their own decisions!"

Jessica, you are a perfect example of being more than inspirational! Thank you for just being you and for joining the movement this project stands for. So proud to have you as a DiversAble Model!!
