Jack and Tricia had polio when they were toddlers. They’re now both wheelchair-users and have good careers to financially support their family.

“It is important that disabled people equip themselves with education,” Jack advises. Many people with disabilities now have good quality jobs compared to the past. “During my time…our society wasn’t that advance,” he explains. “Many of them didn’t have the opportunity…but now I believe that things have changed for the better.” he says.

“People’s mindsets have changed,” says Jack. Most of them are now given equal treatment and opportunities when they have the right qualifications.

“You must equip yourself with good job skills so then you become marketable. I personally feel that the disabled professionals are…more responsible in their duties…they value the opportunities given to them…so they don’t take things for granted.”
