Message from Mariella Paulino

My life has been an incredible adventure. From traveling to Antarctica while in high school, graduating from NYU and Georgetown, working with the Department of Defense, non-profits, for profits, and everything else in-between!

I have had no desire to participate in the inspirational porn that dominates the disability conversation nor the victimhood mentality where I allow my happiness to be at the mercy of others.

I'm committed to keeping things real and making them better because the only way I will create the world I need is by creating the world I need. We all have the power to be engineers of social change. My mission is to focus on making my life more accessible so I can go on more adventures. Join me!
