Michelle F.

They didn’t think I could live out on my own, which I proved them wrong. I got a great job. I went to school. And now I’m going an assembly job. And I really like it.

—Michelle, an assembler


Your future is open. Although people with disabilities often face barriers moving into the world of work, many do succeed. Many discover exciting jobs inspired by their interests and abilities.

Each month Open Futures will introduce you to three people with disabilities who believed in themselves and followed their dreams. Open Futures will also lead you to resources that will help you open up your future.
