Lara Wong is a first-year student at Ryerson. She relies on a walker to get around campus. She lives in a Pitman Hall room renovated for her needs, including a roll-in shower.
Wong has carefully planned her route to classes based on accessibility and spent much of her first week on campus mapping it out with her support worker.
The gap between being a first-year and a fourth-year student isn’t as big as it seems, but it’s a gap filled with a lot of experiences, fears and anxieties.
Sunlight streams into a tiny apartment on Jarvis Street. Small, furry cat toys litter the floor. On a grey loveseat, a chubby, orange cat sleeps. His name is Chandler and he’s a service cat.
