Trinity Corney is not just any student at Montclair State University. Corney struggles with cerebral palsy, a rare disorder that affects one’s movement, muscle tone or posture. However, she does not let it stop her from doing what she needs to accomplish.
Whether that means opening up a heavy-set door herself, or walking the extra distance, she lets nothing get in the way of her perseverance. Although strong inside and out, there are times where there are not enough services provided for her to easily get in and out of buildings on her college campus.
Montclair State offers disability resources for those that are disabled at the Disability Resource Center. They provide accommodations and services such as note-takers, readers, counseling, shuttle services and more. Although Montclair State has disability resources for those that are disabled, it is not enough for students like Corney.
“I do think they can improve in some areas, especially with building structures and the way the accommodations are and how they are put into place,” Corney said.
Even with roadblocks in the way, Corney proves to be a shining light of positivity and walks over every crack on the sidewalk.
