My name is Kyle Erickson and I'm a Research Associate at the North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities and I'm a "stand up" comedian on the side. When I'm not on stage performing or helping other people with disabilities, I enjoy watching pro wrestling, hanging out with my dog, and spending time with my family.

I have cerebral palsy, and I use a wheelchair to get around. I was born with it (the CP, not the wheelchair)

My advice would be to never stop fighting. You deserve to have just as much of a fulfilling life as anyone. You just might have to work harder at it, but it's so worth it! Reach out if you need help.
