Kevin Cartwright is passionate about training, education, and advocacy for equal treatment for Bahamians with disabilities. He hopes to serve as a catalyst to society in providing those services to the disabled community in the form of curriculum design, instruction, and disability rights legislation as a thought leader in this vital aspect of society.
Kevin is presently completing classes online, in Nassau, due to the effects of COVID-19 on travel and safety protocols.
In Kevin’s Own Words:
“I am a Bahamian and a person with a disability, who live the experiences every day. Although I have achieved some level of success, my struggles were amplified because of my disability. I feel that it is important for those persons with disabilities following in my footsteps to have a role model. Good examples of leadership are rather difficult to come by, and I feel that my contributions, no matter how small, can serve as an impetus to inspire and motivate others, like myself, who dare to dream, aspire to achieve and become an integral part of providing solutions to the problem.”Download PDF View Website
