True Colors

20 Dec 2017 by Jevan Moses

Hi, my name is Jevan Moses. I am 24 years old, and I am currently a first-year student at Cincinnati State majoring in Audio Video Production. I have always been very interested in films. I love watching behind the scene features on films. Sometimes I spend hours on YouTube watching scenes from my favorite movies.

My journey with cerebral palsy has been challenging.

My journey with cerebral palsy has been challenging.  I was born prematurely at 7 months old. The doctors didn’t diagnose me until I was 2 years old, but my mom said she knew at 6 months that something was wrong with my development.  I received OT and PT for many years.  They taught me a lot of things, most importantly how to walk.

I think it is important to treat everyone equally.

As I get older, I think it is important to treat everyone equally.  There’s been times where I have felt uncomfortable in public because of the way I walk.  Once I am seated, I don’t want to get back up because of feeling that I am being judged.

I teamed up with six other people to make this film to show that no matter what type of differences a person may have, they still should be treated like an equal human being.
