Disabling Ableism: Erina Park at TEDxKids@BC

 

Often called on to taste-test homemade food products, Erina spends her life casually munching on snacks night and day. However, after catching a napkin on fire a couple years back, she has sworn an oath to never involve herself in cooking.
But although she doesn't cook Erina has dedicated countless hours working with people of all ages to make the community a more welcoming place.
