About Maddeline Thomas

Disability Advocate, Accounting Associate & Media Influencer

My purpose is to promote disability awareness through my personal perspective. I have physical disabilities and I do not let my disabilities stop me from reaching my goals. I have my bachelor’s degree and work as an accounting associate. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exercising, shopping, traveling, and trying new things. My character traits are responsibility, loyalty, perseverance, kindness, optimism, encouraging, and ambitiousness. Also, I am a fun person to be around and I always have a smile on my face. 

Throughout the years, I keep overcoming obstacles and adversities with having disabilities. There are so many times where people doubted my abilities. I push through barriers and follow my goals. I have amazing support from everyone who impacted my life in a positive way. I want to give advice for people with disabilities and provide awareness to people with individual differences to accept them. People with disabilities should not be seen based on their disabilities, but others need to see them as they are. We all live in the same world and we need to understand each other. I am very relatable and my goal is to help people with and without disabilities to show that we are not different from each other.
