Mikayla has been an inspiration to many, but no one has been inspired more by Mikayla than her mom, Kim. With inspiration from Mikayla and support from friends and family, Kim founded “Mikayla’s Voice.” Voice, an acronym for the Voice of Inclusion for Children Everywhere, is a non-profit organization. The organization’s mission is to “inspire kids of all abilities to share the message of inclusion.”

Over the years, Kim has observed that children have always been the most accepting of Mikayla’s disabilities; are the least afraid to ask questions, and sometimes are the best teachers. Children seem to understand that diversity builds understanding, compassion and acceptance. Without a voice Mikayla has taught her friends some of life’s most important lessons.

“Mikayla’s Voice” will work with children to develop projects for kids by kids, which will help share the message of inclusion for children everywhere.
