Pushing the Limit: Kayaking, Accessibility, and Rock Climbing


Hello, I am Faris and I am from Indonesia. As you may know, there are "photojournalists" appointed for every day of our program, and today, I was that guy with camera.

Today was a great and energizing day. First we went for kayaking in Skokie Lagoon, outside of Chicago. I personally had so much fun and enjoyed kayaking!

After lunch, we went to the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab. This place is so innovative and new. Afterwards, we talked with Mr. Larry at the Chicago Park District about how he works to make the city more accessible for people with disabilities.

Finally we approached to our last activity --rock climbing! That was awesome! Thank you to Brian, Jackie, and Serena for organizing this activity. And I want give special thanks to Kyle for assisting me while rock climbing and motivating me when I almost gave up.
