disABILITY LINK/AAPD Summer Intern

Hello my name is Anissa Favors and I am an disABILITY LINK/AAPD Summer Intern , my host site is Atlanta Legal Aid. This is week 4 of a 10 week program, so far my experience during this internship has been great. The many opportunities a person could ask for have been provided in the kindest way. With this experience I am finding out more about myself and I am meeting important people that I would never have dreamt of meeting before this internship. Some of the things I do while interning at Atlanta Legal Aid are; making phone calls, setting dates, handling client’s case files, requesting certain documentation or verification papers, and much more. The level of enjoyment I have by being a small part of something so important to everyone in the disability community really makes my day, I am talking about the Olmstead Decision.  I’m so proud of the Olmstead Decision that gives many people with disabilities the opportunity to get back into their life in the community, it really brings me joy to be a small part of something so important. I am also proud of disABILITY LINK, it is a great place for anyone with a disability, they know what is means to have a disability and the barriers we face.  Sometimes certain things can happen in life, or the difficulties we face, can make us lose ourselves, and disABILITY LINK can support you to find yourself again. At disABILITY LINK they help no matter what.
