My name is Zarifa Roberson and I am an African American Woman with a Disability who is an Entrepreneur. I won’t tell you the name of my disability, I like for people to guess my disability… I will give you a hint… It is not common 😉. My motto is to Expect The Unexpected because you never know what I am going to say or do.
Expect The UneXpected
Educational Background: I have a Bachelor Of Science in Speech Communication with a minor in African American Studies from Millersville University, Class 2001 and A Master Of Education in Rehabilitation Counseling from Coppin State University, Class 2008.
Work Experience: I have over 15 years experience working in the disability community. I currently working as a Mobile Therapist for Special People In The Northeast (SPIN), Inc as well as a ground-breaking/motivational speaker on controversial topic as such Sexuality VS Disability.
Independent Living: I currently live in the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection – Philadelphia, PA in a 2 bedroom row home without any caregiver providing my essential daily needs.
Driving: I drive my own car to work, grocery store, social gatherings, etc. My car does not have any car modifications and/or adaptive technologies.
My purpose through my business is to change the way society has stigmatized People with Disabilities especially among People Of Color with Disabilities and to create an image of People Of Color with Disabilities as contributor members of society such as entrepreneur, lawyers, doctors, vocational rehabilitation counselors, teachers, etc. Most importantly, I want our image to be diverse, successful and valuable members to society.
