Blind social work students on advocacy, intersections and growing up between cultures

Blind social work students on advocacy, intersections and growing up between cultures
By Áine Kelly-Costello • Issue #1 • View online
Dive into two rich conversations spanning cultures, advocacy and social work education.

Welcome to this email dispatch for Disability Crosses Borders, a podcast and blog featuring stories where disability, migration and culture meet. I’m Áine, host of DCB, and I’m so glad you’re here.
In this episode, I talk to two blind social work students first Fatuma Abdi, and second Jessica Karim.
I chose to interview them one at a time as they’ve grown up between totally separate cultures and have distinct life experiences.
But you’ll hear how for both, experiences relating to disability and immigration became driving forces in their decisions to pursue social work.
You’ll also learn about how social work education and practice can better account for the experiences and needs of multiply marginalised folks.

This podcast is still brand new (this is episode number 6). If you support its mission of making the stories where disability, migration and culture meet more visible, could you please share it?
Thanks so much! And hit reply for any feedback, questions, or episode ideas.
Áine :)
