Disability Awesome: Tuscaloosa Girl Gets Life-Changing Christmas Gift

Welcome to the Disability Awesome segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Disability Awesome will feature a person or persons with mental and / or physical disabilities who are doing awesome and great things! As editor / publisher Nathan Young has an disability (Autism), we here at Geek Alabama love it when others when disabilities do great things!

From WVUA 23, Most engineering students at the University of Alabama don’t see how their senior projects impact others, but this group is seeing firsthand how much of a life-changer their work is for a local 10-year-old girl.

Thanks to these five students, Rachel Williams has a new wheelchair lift that grants her far more mobility than she ever thought she’d have. On Dec. 15, she got her first taste of the new lift.
