This iReport is part of an assignment:
Rare Diseases Day (World Coverage)
When Cheryl Fields could not find employment after being a "whistleblower" about alleged illegal disparate activities and for having a rare medical disease Trimethylaminuria (TMAU), she started The Diversity Project. She is a sought after motivational speaker regarding discrimination, human resources, and rare diseases.
Having Trimethylaminuria (TMAU) can interfere with many aspects of daily life, affecting a person's relationships, social life, and career. Some people with Trimethylaminuria experience depression and social isolation as a result of this condition, but NOT Cheryl!
The Chief Principal and Founder of the Diversity Project, Cheryl L. Fields, MBA, Ph.D. (ABD), has over 15 years of grievance writing and EEO/EEOC investigative experience. She has worked for the Kansas Human Rights Commission as a Supervisory Manager and EEO Special Investigator.
The goal of the group is to get on CNN/CNN international and on the global international television stations.
There are TMAU patients all over the world.
People with disabilities deserve a fair chance to work, live, and love.
2/29/2012 is International Rare Disease Day.
Thank you so very much for your time.
