Terrence Ho from Toronto, Ontario founded Enables Me with his brother Torrance, when asked why he took on this goal “Enables Me started when I asked my brother, Torrance, the question, “What is your dream job?” He’s been a power wheelchair hockey player for over a decade and his answer without hesitation was, “I want to be an NHL goaltender”, we chuckled as we both knew it wasn’t physically possible, and I asked “what would be just as good?”;
that’s when Torrance said, “a sports reporter””
With stories from others with disabilities being submitted, Terrence realized that individuals with disabilities and their family and friends needed a place to share their stories and experiences, so he decided to give them a voice through Enables Me.
“Accessibility and disability can impact someone that you care about at any moment. That is why Enables Me is a necessary resource to allow you to learn from and share experiences with others”
Members use pictures, audio and video to share their stories and all members have lived experience, either with disabilities themselves, living with a loved one with, or work with individuals with disabilities, they strive to enable others and themselves!
Enables Me has been going strong for 2 years and they want to know “What Enables You?”
