You OWN It: Your Moment

“I am so many things before I’m a person in a wheelchair.”

—Zach Anner


Meet Zach Anner

This had to go beyond 140 characters. Anner was a contestant on the Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search For the Next TV Star. He along with Kristina Kuzmic-Crocco won the competition and both of their shows will be produced on the network.  Anner week after week make his way through this competition showing he is so many things before being a person in wheelchair. His testament, will, and drive is awesome.

The “dis” in disability can sometimes have such a negative connotation in some minds but it’s people with spirit like Anner who prove that the “dis” should not be connected to the word ability in any form at all.

This is my beyond 140 spiel for the week. Here’s a piece by By Michelle Diament on Anner’s win. Check out more videos from the Your OWN competition.
