Limited Mobility does not equal Limited Ability. Where some see disability, we see
After being crowned Ms. Wheelchair New York 2018, Ketrina Hazell of Brooklyn began to blossom into a motivational speaker, enabling her to work to empower other people with disabilities to advocate for themselves. Ms. Wheelchair New York is a competition that promotes disability awareness, education and advocacy and celebrates the accomplishments of women who use wheelchairs.
Ketrina is herself a self-advocate. Having been diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 9 months of age, she uses a wheelchair for mobility. After winning the Ms. Wheelchair competition, Ketrina focused her platform on bringing self-advocacy into schools to make them more inclusive.
