Promoting acceptance and understanding

Sharon Boyce is a true example of what can be achieved with a determined attitude. Sharon was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis when she was 11-years-old and is confined to an electric wheelchair, but she has not let her circumstances stop her from attaining her personal, career and community goals.

Sharon’s achievements are impressively varied;

  • She has written a children’s book to help kids learn about physical disability.
  • Sharon is involved in a number of local and state networks and organisations including the Queensland Disability Advisory Council (of which she is the current chair).
  • Developer of Discovering DisAbility and Diversity – a first-of-its-kind experiential disability awareness program that travels around the region informing the community about people’s differences and how to celebrate them.
  • USQ Community Service and Outstanding Alumnus of the Year Awards 2016 recipient.

Promoting acceptance, understanding and the benefits of a positive attitude are just a few of the attributes that make USQ alumna Sharon Boyce an inspiration.
