Dorysped is multilingual speaking four languages and is a student at Broward College, studying foreign language. As a member of a local book club, Dorysped said: “I feel passion about books. I think once you have traveled the pages of a book, you are trapped and never return to the same place.” Her many goals include learning how to play guitar, be a language translator, a psychologist, and work for a nonprofit organization helping others to achieve their goals.
For the third year in a row, the Center for Independent Living of Broward will offer a fabulous fashion show, giving kids and young adults with disabilities the opportunity to showcase their abilities and individuality on the runway. The purpose of this show is to increase self-confidence while embracing our unique abilities and show that persons with disabilities are able regardless of their different abilities. Last year’s show spotlighted 40 models of different abilities, ranging from cognitive, physical, and developmental disabilities. The theme of this year’s show is “Through the Decades,” with music and and fashion that will take you back in time as you watch the model showcase fashion from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and today.

Doors will open at 4:00 PM. Registration for the Fashion Show is $15 in advance and $20 on July 12th and 13th.
