Lilliana Lopez, 23, threaded her way through the aisles of one of Chicago’s premier trade shows, perusing a wide range of state-of-the-art products and services.
“I’m learning so much,” she said, pausing in front of a display at Navy Pier. “I see so many opportunities for my dreams.”
Lopez, a student at Wilbur Wright College on Chicago’s Northwest Side, could be any young adult trying to expand her knowledge and her network. But she was at AccessChicago, navigating one of the nation’s largest expos for people with disabilities from her wheelchair.
