JDAIM: An Interview with Rachel O’Kelley

February is Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month. As part of our Federation’s commitment to inclusion, every week this month we will feature a blog written by either a member of our community, his or her parent, or a volunteer or professional working with one of our partner organizations that serves individuals with special needs. We recently interviewed Rachel O’Kelley, an 11-year-old 7th grader at Bridges Academy, a school for “2e” (“twice exceptional”) kids. Rachel has participated in the Nes Gadol Program at Federation’s partner organization Vista del Mar for several years. Nes Gadol provides Jewish education and B’nei Mitzvah and confirmation programs for children and teens of all abilities. Rachel enjoys helping people through community service and performing stand-up comedy. She also loves art, video games, watching movies with her family, and, most recently, horseback riding.

By the time they headed back to their lives as busy professionals, they were a cohort, excited to spend a year learning, growing, and acquiring the skills that will help them change the future of our city — together.
