Nathan and Abby on Ch 7’s The Daily Edition!
On October 12th our ambassadors Abby Earl and Nathan Basha appeared on national television to advocate for more diversity and inclusion in the film industry!
Nathan had some very profound things to say including this:
QUESTION: what are some of the common misunderstandings people might have about, people with intellectual disabilities.
OK, well they’ve been told that they can’t learn, they can’t have a social life, they can’t have employment, and they’re not able to live their own life.
I say that’s bogus, personally because I have been given a lot of opportunities in my life, however, it’s about breaking down those barriers and those boundaries that hold people together because of fixed mindsets, they need to be broken down and destroyed, because they’re not worth it in the long run.
It’s about realising potential, and allowing people who have intellectual disabilities, or not, a chance to really thrive in their own environments.
