Be. is extremely proud of David and all the work that he tirelessly does to advocate for people with disabilities in New Zealand so that they can live a fulfilling and meaningful life. 

He makes an extremely interesting point about the use of the internet in today's world and how this technology is not necessarily accessible for all people, especially those with intellectual or learning disabilities, who prefer to communicate face-to-face. 

We certainly admire his courage and determination to Be. the Change!
