My name's Morgan Boyer, recent graduate of Carlow University and dog lover.  

I'm also a young woman with epilepsy and high-functioning autism. Though like far too many people with disabilities, my occupational outlook is rather bleak to say the least. 

According to Forbes, "only 35% of civilians with disabilities aged 18 to 64 had a job in 2015," (Donnelly, G., 2017). 

Personally, my epilepsy has prevented me from getting perfectly decent jobs due to the fact that the US has a terrible public transportation system.

For example, I had to turn down a job at ModCloth because it'd take me 1.5 hour and $16 one-way. $16 hours is two hours of work, and $32 (two-ways) is four. By that point, it'd be a waste of everyone's time. Why should I even bother? 

What's more ironic? The office that it was at was fifteen minutes away by car. 

Yet too often people label those with disabilities "lazy", when we do want to work; it's just the United States isn't the land of opportunity for people whose minds aren't wired the same. 

 I would if there was a writing-based job that wouldn't cost me half of my shift and two "Lord of the Rings" movies worth of time just to get to everyday.  

Thankfully, I do have my first chapbook of poetry debuting this summer through Finishing Line Press. Pre-orders will be from March 20th-May 18th. 

My poetry been published in several different journals; Rune, Pittsburgh City Paper's "Chapter & Verse", Bridge: Bluffton University Literary Journal, The Critical Point and Wilderness House Literary Review. One of them was even awarded the Marilyn P Donnelly award for poetry by the Madwomen in the Attic. I've also been involved as a student editor of both my college and high school literary magazines. 

Poetry isn't my only passion, either. 

I've written countless articles on the Odyssey Online (https://www.theodysseyonline.com/user/@flyingpotat... and WordPress (https://morganboyerpoet.wordpress.com/).

I also love to draw elaborate sketches, and if you need samples, look no further than my Twitter: https://twitter.com/MorganBoyerPoet?lang=en

I'm not lazy. If I was lazy, I wouldn't have created all of these drawings or written articles on a variety of subjects from dystopia to the Sound of Music. 

Thank you so much for your support.
