About Erin Kelly

Erin M. Kelly is a columnist, writer, and freelance editor with Cerebral Palsy who wants to be recognized for her work rather than her disability. She’s a 2009 graduate of Penn State Altoona, where she majored in Letters, Arts and Sciences. During her senior year, she was hired as a columnist for The Altoona Mirror, the daily newspaper in Altoona, PA. Her column entitled, “The View From Here,” runs monthly and addresses in a light-hearted, humorous manner the challenges she faces daily. Writing is her window to the world and gives her the opportunity to bring what’s inside out.

    A special thank you to Cameron and the entire Staff of The Good Men Project for allowing our daughter, Erin, the opportunity to use her talents and share her creativity with the world. We are very proud of her and enjoy seeing how she shares her skills with the world. She certainly can tell a story!

  2. Erin Kelly says:

    Thank you, world, for your incredible response to this! I’ve written dozens upon dozens of letters to Dwayne, and I truly believe in my heart that this one will be the one to go all the way. To be able to write a letter of this depth- and to have be read by eyes other than my own0is huge. It means more to me than each and every one of you will ever know. I hope that, together, we can get this in front of the right pair of eyes. Thank you all so much!!!

  3. What an awesome letter Erin. Thank for sharing it! I kind of always liked The Rock myself. Although I’m not a WWF fan.
