WHAT ISSUES ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?: I believe that barriers to learning can cause issues on both the micro and macro levels, and both should be considered equally important. A lot of accessibility issues come from wider society - these are issues with how our society functions and include things like societal perceptions and government legislations. Equally, a lot of accessibility issues are small, individual barriers, and these are no less important. To ensure we are being as accessible as possible, we need to consider both of these issues and ensure that our activsm is intersectional and fights for accessibility for everyone.
