By societal standards I have a Disability. I move and do things differently than the average/normal person. But honestly, I do not know what the definition of “normal/ average” is, anymore. For the record, I HATE labels – I believe that we should label jars and NOT people. I tell people that my real disability is being flat-chested in Hollywood and over the age of 30. Trust me, it’s a disability. That being said, my official diagnosis is Spastic Cerebral Palsy. I was born 3-months early. I was diagnosed approximately the age of two years old.

Yes, we know there's a difference between a lectern and a podium. A lectern is the stand upon which a speaker can hold their notes. It often holds the microphone. A podium is the platform. A stage.
Our name, Behind the Podium is meant to convey that there's a lot that happens backstage, before a speaker ever gets in front of an audience. Behind the Podium can give you, the reader, some insight about how a speaker got to the podium, and what they're doing behind the scenes.
