Name: Aleah Nicole Edwards

The best advice I received: My Grandpa gave me this advice----“God gives His hardest battles to His strongest soldiers” He says “things may seem tough in life but never give up, God will get you through it.”

In 5 years: I see myself finishing up my masters degree and beginning my career as a Speech Language Pathologist.

If I could change anything in this world: I would change people’s perception about individuals with disabilities. We need to promote more acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities. 

If I could invite 3 people to dinner: I would invite Abby Wambach because I would want to ask her about all her soccer accomplishments and what it is like to be an amazing soccer player.

Ellen DeGeneres - because I love her personality and spontaneous spirit and she is funny. 

My Uncle David- He passed when I was 9 months old and I’ve heard he was a great guy and I would want to get to know him and just talk with him.
