        In this 30 Days of MD story, Connor Shanta writes about his experiences working at the YMCA. He emphasizes the challenges that come with working with a disability and the ways he’s adapted.

        Here’s an excerpt: “My first position at the New River Y was working the front desk answering phones and working with members. Because of my height, my knees and wheelchair control do not fit under the front desk. To help me with my job responsibilities, a wireless headset and keyboard were provided. The wireless technology allows me to talk on the phone hands-free and to use the keyboard on my lap, easing my typing.”

        Do you have any takeaways from Connor’s story?
