Kim Clark

Muscular Dystrophy Association

 

Kia ora, my name is Kim and I'm of the view that if life is dull, you're not doing it right; there's always excitement to be found if you look hard enough. I was born with a condition that causes muscle weakness but I don't let it define me. I'm a "can girl" rather than a "can't girl" and where people say "no" I find a "yes". I have a passion for advocacy and helping people to get all that they need in life so they can thrive. During the day I work as a Recovery Administrator at ACC where I get to support people in their recovery from injury and I love giving back. During my free time I love to crochet blankets and also enjoy solving Rubiks Cube. One of my biggest dreams is to live in a world where all people with impairments are seen as having potential. To live in a world where no one is discounted because of their abilities or inabilities. If I will do anything in this world it will be to work towards changing people’s perspectives so that when people see an impaired person they would see what they can do before what they can’t do.
