Our organization came across an interesting article from The New York Times Magazine. A soldier wrote about her experience as an active duty soldier in the army, navigating her military dream with a learning disability.
We focus our work on developing grit and perseverance. These qualities provided Ms. Zephrine with a strong foundation to realize her dream of joining the army, and obtaining her master’s degree in social work.
We are sharing this story as a way to showcase the life experiences told firsthand by individuals with learning disabilities and other challenges. Please note that this is one person’s experience.
