Hear from Roderick
- What was the happiest moment of your life?When I was helping deliver my daughter, Avayah, in 2013
- On growing up with a large family"Doctors amputated my foot when I was 2. I'm one of 14 children, and so growing up for me it's been, 'you are one of us.' There's no 'you have a disability.' There's no 'you're different.' We had cows, horses, pigs, and lived in the ghetto at the same time. And (if they decided) 'we want to dig a two-foot hole, put your leg in it, and cover that hole back up and watch you pop out of your leg and hop all the way home to to cry to mom and dad' (that) was kind of my life. That's what my brothers and sisters did because they got a kick out of it. ... I was treated like no one different."
