In continuation of National Hispanic Heritage Month,

EPIC wants to highlight a fashion model and actress Jillian Mercado. As a wheelchair user due to muscular dystrophy, she is one of the few professional models who have a visible physical disability in the fashion industry. A prominent figure in the new wave of models challenging beauty ideals in the fashion industry, Mercado is keen to fight the lack of representation of people with disabilities in the fashion industry and their enduring stigma.

Jillian can be seen in movies such as The L Word: Generation Q (2019), My Eyes Are Up Here (2022), and Buzz: at&T Original Documentaries (2007). Having worked for brands like Olay, Target, Calvin Klein, and Nordstrom, and hit the runway for The Blonds. She's also shot for Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, and CR Fashion Book.

"My mission has always been to continue the conversation of disability in fashion and the world of media and entertainment. Me having so much intersectionality (disabled, afro-Latinx, q***r, and women) I will continue to completely remove those doors and make sure that representation is the main focus in every room I enter.” – Jillian Mercado

We had an incident at work where some concerned staff requested our Admin to take further training on stapling as one of the intake packages had a staple that only held by one side of the staple. She even received a certificate for the intense training she took to rectify the lack of stapling skills. We always have fun at Ability Employment! Every lesson at work is a learning opportunity!
