Alex Aerni

My name is Alex, I am originally from Brooklyn but currently live in Queens. I went to Adelphi University and I have a degree in history and music history. I have always loved music and I'm part of a singing group called the Peace of Heart Choir which performs at venues such as hospitals, shelters, and nursing homes throughout the five boroughs of New York City. I am currently working two jobs.

I come to Outside Voices because it gives me an opportunity to share my experiences as a person with a disability. I like sharing with other individuals who have similar experiences. I feel that sharing my story helps people to know what the life of people with disabilities is like, what it is truly like. I feel that in this way we can help to bring about change in how society views individuals with disabilities.

Outside Voices helps to bring change in society by allowing people with disabilities to share their life stories.
