2013 Easter Seals Michigan Ambassadors
Every year Easter Seals Michigan selects two individuals to serve as our ambassadors for the coming year. This process is very involved and there are several candidates that apply for this year-long position. We are very pleased to announce our 2013 child and adult ambassadors, Abby and Curtis.
Abby was in and out of therapy since the age of six with varying diagnoses and varying degrees of success. She started at Easter Seals at the age of 14 and was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum disorder (Asperger's syndrome). Since then, she has vastly improved her school performance as well as her social skills.
She has become involved in the Teen Advisory Counsel and has started working in a family-owned business. Abby is an inspirational person that we are proud to have represent us.
Curtis was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder following a trauma-related incident that destroyed his life, leaving Curtis jobless and homeless. Since coming to Easter Seals Michigan, Curtis has been able to get a new apartment and a new job. He is a testament to Easter Seals and our mission and we couldn't be happier to have Curtis serve as our adult ambassador for 2013.
