A Special Olympian, awarded for her work
Today Melanie is nominated for a Celebration of People Award. Every year, the awards mark the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities. They recognize people in the community working to build a more accessible and inclusive Ottawa. Melanie is one of those people, and she joined us in studio.
Update: after our interview, at the awards, Melanie won in the sports category -- congrats to her!
