Julianna, an 18 year old senior, has had her eyes set on driving a car for several years now. As she was born with spina bifida, getting her license would be a challenge. It was at this time that Julianna began to perform extensive research as to how it would be possible for her to drive her car independently. After hours of research, she found the hand tools accessory she was looking for, but realized that this type of search should not have taken the time she invested. It was then that her idea was born and she decided to create I Don’t Need Easy (www.idontneedeasy.com), a Web page devoted to helping and connecting people with disabilities.
In the creation of the website, she has made friends with people who have disabilities. These individuals have become a bit more independent day by day with the resources Julianna has provided them. Julianna has told us that her goal “is to connect teens and young adults with physical handicaps, whether it be visual and/or hearing impairments, spina bifida, or amputees”. She went on to thank BoIA and voice her appreciation, claiming, BoIA has "helped with providing the best information to these people".
