Valerie Piro

Val was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York (the part that gets cut off of tourist maps), and blogs about life with paralysis and wheelchair-accessible bakeries. In the fall, she will start at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she will study Higher Education with a focus on college access for students with disabilities, in addition to inclusive education. She recently graduated from the University of Cambridge, where she researched early medieval definitions and perceptions of disability, and from Harvard College, where she wrote her senior thesis on medieval tournaments and claimed it wasn’t an excuse to watch “A Knight’s Tale” multiple times.
