Hi y'all! I'm Megan, I'm a UX designer working at Nickelodeon. I'm here because I love to meet other folks and learn from them + their stories. I'm disabled, with both hearing and vision issues (among many other things :X), so I'm especially passionate about accessibility and disability issues. And my first and longest love is mac and cheese.

Megan, thanks so much for chiming in here. Given your position in the design community and also with your "issues", it's so great to have your insights here.

Sidenote: Nickelodeon!? What is THAT like?! Would it be much to ask if you'd be open to writing a small [or long] post for the blog on something around your work there? Sooooo damn cool.

I write a blog at darshangajara.com & @WeirdoWizard on Twitter.

P. S. My favourite food is pretty much everything home-cooked :)
