One-on-One with Zarifa Roberson
Zarifa Roberson was born with a disease called arthrogryposis multiplex congentia, a severe arthritis of her joints and muscles. Medical staff shortly informed her parents that she would not live pass a year.
Now at age 30, Roberson is moving and grooving with a Master's degree from Coppin State University and a flourishing career. An ambitious and vibrant spirit she decided to launch I.D.E.A.L. (Individuals with Disabilities Express About Life) Magazine to bring forth positive representation of young people living with disabilities. She takes the time to chat with huevoicesdotcom about National Disibilities Employment Awareness Month and her groundbreaking publication.
