Today, as I write this, I’m exploring how to write inclusive alt text. My long journey with digital accessibility and interest in inclusive design has, somehow, brought me here.

This teaching experience made me realize how much I enjoy learning and teaching. I actively sought speaking opportunities that gave me the pleasure of taking a stage at conferences around the U.S.
