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.

    Finely written, insightful narrative. Your work just gets better and better, Erin.

  2. Erin this is a great article and we shared it on our facebook page! It is so true that a good teacher can really inspire a student to take the next step in life. If anyone needs help with legal or medical resources our friends at MyAdvocateshave really helped us out a ton.

  3. Sonia Perez says:

    I just want to take a moment to congratulate you. As a woman with Cerebral Palsy myself, I find your story encouraging. It’s great to know that someone besides myself approaches life with a disability in this way. There is so much more to us than our disability, and we have a lot to offer the world. As I prepare to graduate college in December with a degree in Sociology, I hope to inspire and teach the same way you have

    I am the self-proclaimed “President” of the Erin Kelly Fan Club. I read ALL of her writings and appreciate her so much as a writer. I would predict that it will not be long before Erin is known by and writing for a National audience. Keep up the GREAT work Erin. Your friend and “President,” DEAN MARCAURELLE
