About Me

My name is Sady Paulson, from Killdeer, North Dakota, and I have Cerebral Palsy.  I am an editor, presenter, and a recent graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Digital Cinematography.

As a kid, I always wondered if I would ever have a job that I loved. That changed 14 years ago when I met Mark Coppin, an Apple Distinguished Educator and Director of Assistive Technology at the Ann Carlson Center in Jamestown, North Dakota who introduced me to the technology that has helped me access the world.

Now, I’m a big nerd that loves technology! I am like a technology junkie, but there is more to me than just that. Technology has been a huge part of my life for a long time.

I have Cerebral Palsy. It brings about a lot of obstacles and challenges into my life, but I do not let this hold me back. My love for technology is more than just a passion; it gives me access to my world. I need help in some areas, but assistive technology enables me to communicate with my loved ones, and pursue my career.

I recently graduated from Full Sail University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Cinematography. Technology has been very helpful to me through my education, and now I am following my dreams. I will always use some type of technology in my daily life.

I love to make films about real life and the world. I enjoy being able to use my skills in the real world.

I often do presentations about myself, and the technology that has changed my life. I hope by sharing my story, other people will realize that it is possible to live how you wish. There are people out there who make it their sole mission in life, to help you find and access everything you need. These people mean more to me than they will ever know.

    1. Dear Sady.
      You are a woman after my own heart! I have cerebral palsy too, and have been using Apple computers for some time, with the help of KeyStrokes for word prediction, and a keyguard to give me the accuracy I need to use the keyboard. Not everything is perfect, but I couldn’t return to Windows!

      Best wishes,
      Sarah

  1. About 12:00 AM, I was just scrolling through the apple website and came across an article of some sort talking about you, so I decided to search you up and what I found was truly worth it. You basically inherited the concept of not giving up so naturally and I know I’m a random stranger but just wanted to say seeing how much you accomplished throughout your years really does inspire me to do better for myself as an human being. Always forward, never backwards. Glad I decided to browse on Apple. May good fortune accept you with open arms. Always.

    p.s. You’re awesome!
