Hello! My name is Áine Kelly-Costello. I’m a blind, chronically ill creative and campaigner and I’m starting a new podcast and blog called Disability Crosses Borders. It’s a home for the stories where disability, migration and culture meet.
Moving and living between places and cultures can be exhilarating and overwhelming, fruitful and stressful. When we add disability to the mix, it’s even more complex.
For disabled migrants and those living between cultures, too often our stories and rights are invisible in immigration conversations, and invisible in disability conversations.
As a disabled migrant myself, I created this podcast and blog because I want that to change.
