Speak loud enough for so everyone can be heard. – Tiara S. Mercius

Tiara is a BKA (below-knee amputee) and has some amputated fingers. Basically, she’s disabled. After multiple surgeries over the span of 10 years, Tiara made the decision to use her wheelchair full-time. It seems like an odd decision but, it was probably one of the best ones. She’s become more mobile, more independent and more confident. Her four wheels opened up the world to her.
