We spent some time with Arizona to hear his views on the benefits of employment, self-advocacy and the importance of building relationships with job coaches and employers.

If you haven’t heard about Arizona, here are some things you should know:

Arizona is the president and treasurer of the New Horizons Support Group forPeople with Disabilities in Tampa Florida. He sits on many boards and committees. In spite of many challenges, he leads an independent life, where he is a tireless advocate for people with disabilities at the local, state and national level. He is available for his friends and colleagues 24/7 and is always helpful with an infectious smile. 

We think you should spend some time with Arizona! Here is a video where you can get to know him.

Here is a transcript of the video.
