Kiley Adams, India
“Finding India's Missing Disabled Population”
"I have never been so holistically challenged before. Academically, my research is as complex as the lives it looks to describe. Personally, I must create and recreate parts of identity daily as my new culture constantly shifts the meaning I extract from both myself and my surroundings. It has been immensely challenging in ways I never expected and likewise immensely fulfilling. I wouldn't trade the 100+ degree, mosquito-filled days for anything."
