My name is Justin Cooper and I’m a filmmaker and artist. I’m currently working on a documentary called The Wheelchair Chronicles and the film focuses on my life in a wheelchair. I am a graduate of DePaul University with a degree in communications. I have been an active member of YPC and Access Living since April of 2014. Being a member of YPC has taken me places I never thought possible and I have grown as a person due to my interactions with the wonderful people at Access Living. Often times in our society people with disabilities have been shunned and are viewed as outcasts. The main reason I wanted to join YPC was to change those negative perceptions and to prove that people with disabilities can be valued members of society.
