Amy Wright

Amy Wright was named the 2017 CNN Hero of the Year for her efforts to advocate for disabled people.

Wright, a mom to two kids with Down syndrome, will receive $100,000 to grow her cause -- a coffee shop that employs 40 people with disabilities

"My employees are not broken; 200 million people across the world living with an intellectual or developmental disability are not broken," Wright said Sunday night, when accepting her top 10 CNN Hero award. "What is broken is the lens through which we view people with disabilities." Source 1e.

Wright Amy

I think that she well deserves this Hero of the Year award for what she is doing and the strides she has taken to show people that a disability does not make them any less human. My hat is off to her and her efforts.
