FAITH’S WORLD
(26 min) US



FRIDAY OCTOBER 23 (SESSION 20)

Director: Faith Guilbault
Producers: Joyce Chopra, Sammy Chadwick, Mindy Scheier, Holly Carter

Description:

Faith Guilbault (age 16) has cerebral palsy, and invites us to experience living with special needs so we can all treat being differently-abled with humanity and normalcy. Faith recently walked the catwalk during New York Fashion Week with Runway of Dreams, which is leading a movement to include people with disabilities in the fashion industry. The experience was an eye opener and so empowering for her. She loved seeing people with different abilities having a voice on what makes them feel confident and beautiful.

Biography:

Faith Guilbault is a tenth-grader at The Maryland School for the Blind in Baltimore, Maryland. Faith has cerebral palsy and uses a walker. Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture that impacts 500,000 people in the United States. Faith invites us to experience living with special needs, and in turn, we will come to understand how to treat being differently-abled with more humanity and normalcy. She dreams of being a photographer and currently enjoys therapeutic horseback riding, cheerleading, and indoor skydiving.
