I sit down with Chelsea Bear, a disability advocate with cerebral palsy, to talk about her life. She shares how she feels about people looking at her funny, the importance of language when it comes to talking about disabilities, and what body acceptance looks like with a disability.
Chelsea was born and raised in South Florida. When she was eight months old, her mom began to realize she wasn’t sitting up like the other babies in her mommy and me class, which led to years of doctor visits, MRI’s, cat scans, X-Rays and more. At the age of three, Chelsea was officially diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Today, Chelsea uses social media to share her first-hand story of living with Cerebral Palsy. Her content is comprised of educational, fun and lighthearted posts that strive to create acceptance and awareness for people with disabilities. She’s certainly no stranger to adventure and aims to live her life to the fullest. Some of her favorite pastimes include traveling, learning adaptive exercises, writing, going on walks, drinking red wine, spending time with family and friends, and much more!
