My name is Colby Spangler. I live in an apartment with roommates I chose and I am in college at the University of Alabama and I’m majoring in Wildlife Management. I want to help preserve habitats, rescue, rehabilitate and release injured animals. I am honored to receive this recognition and I hope my advocacy with Supported Decision Making helps other people with disabilities be seen as the capable champions they are. Cerebral Palsy is something that happened to me at birth but it does not define my potential. I want to live life helping other people like me and injured animals live their best life and be free.
