She has always dreamt about telling her story in published print and her dream has finally come true.
Nicola Reefe, a first-time author, of the Wesley village is the newest published Dominican author of the book, ‘This Ability: Finding my Vision’.
‘This Ability’ is an autobiographical account as well as a motivational and inspirational manuscript that tells the story of the life of Nicola Reefe as she grew up living her life with a disability.
In this book, she shows how she overcame her stereotype and rose above societal expectations of the outcome of someone who possess a disability.
Many people have different understanding and preconceived notions about who or what disabled persons should be and Reefe ventures to radically change their thinking and begin to appreciate and marvel at the uniqueness and competence of disabled persons.
Reefe currently resides in Trinidad where she enjoys working at the University of the Southern Caribbean as an Administrator and Part-time lecturer.
She has been accepted to pursue her PhD at the University of the West Indies come September 2016 and anticipates this greatly.
As a trained Psychologist, Reefe intends to use her expertise in helping disabled children find their ‘Ability’. She will be launching a foundation in very short stead under the name, “This Ability” that would be geared towards fulfilling this goal.
Reefe launched her book on May 29, 2016 where many lent their support and approval through their attendance and book purchases.
Copies of this book will soon be available at bookstores in Dominica.
