Rasmus Dissing Nielsen.
I love to push myself out of my comfort zone. I love to put myself I in situations where you probably wouldn’t expect to see someone in a wheelchair. Because we need representation in all shapes or forms. Representation is importen both for us living with a disability and for people without disabilities. Because when you see us, we can break down the barriers that keep us apart.
I’ve always been curious, but exploring can be a challenge when you’re in a wheelchair and tend to stay inside your comfort zone. When I started traveling I was forced to leave my comfort zone in many situations. This has definitely changed me a lot, I’ve grown in many ways. Today I’m kind of an adrenaline-junkie when in comes to leaving my comfort zone.
It gives me energy to experience things that not many does, let alone people without disabilities.
I share my travel experience on my Instagram @WheelchairExplorer to show the possibilities both for people with and without a disability.
I work in media and run af livestreaming business (We Are Wonder), so I also try to use my network to influence for better representation in media.
