Denise Lance

Denise Lance (TEDxKC 2016 Challenge Winner) retired from disability research two years ago to focus on living as independently as she could with cerebral palsy. While still a disability rights advocate, she now focuses on writing and artistic endeavors, including folding origami with her feet. Denise questions society's emphasis on independence, especially for those with disabilities, in light of the interdependence of all humans on one another.
