I'm a polio survivor with both legs affected. I used to walk with braces when I was younger but I got tired of being slow so when I took a wheelchair, my life became easier and I feel much better sitting beautifully on it! And my journey began with this wheels....

What a job!
 
UPDATE: THE NEW MUNICIPAL BUILDING IN NOW VERY DISABLED FRIENDLY! We transferred there last June 12, 2008 and it one of the most accessble municipal uildings in the whole Philippines!  
I enjoy my present job. This is real integration! A daily challenge working in an environment unfriendly for a person on wheelchair. My office is at the third floor of the old municipal building. Everyday I experience people's goodwill and rejection sometimes. But its normal world where human beings live.  They are human and not gods or goddesses who never knew wrong.

Life has changed, I am now the Information Officer and responsible for the Office of Persons with Disabilities in our municipality...
