In this episode, Jennifer Slattery’s daughter, Ashley Chester, shares her battle against a university’s Student Services of Disabilities Office to see that they were actually enforcing the accommodations they were legally required to honor. Initially, her fight was personal as she fought against abuses of power she experienced. But as she became more connected with other students with disabilities, she realized her battle extended beyond her. While this was a difficult and stressful time, God used it to grow her into a woman of strength and to present her with numerous opportunities she likely wouldn’t have enjoyed otherwise.
