ECU was pleased to welcome Cerebral Palsy and disabilities advocate, Ms Kerry Allan-Zinner to the Joondalup Campus on Friday, 3 December to celebrate International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD).
Ms Allan-Zinner’s presentation, entitled, ‘There’s more to me than what you see’ was an engaging and personal account about growing up with Cerebral Palsy and how she used her experiences to shape the person she is today.
Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Engagement, Equity and Indigenous), Professor Brenda Cherednichenko, thanked Ms Allan-Zinner for offering to share her story with the ECU community.
“Kerry works to inspire and educate the community about how to create accepting and welcoming environments for people with disabilities and her story was both personal and inspirational.”
“We are proud to welcome her to ECU and on behalf of everyone in the audience I would like to thank her for celebrating International Day of People with Disability with our community.”
