For some, the term kanthari refers to a unique type of tiny little hot spicy chilly that comes in different colors. For Others, Kanthari is a spice agent to spice up the food, the health, and the life. For me, kanthari is a living community where leaders of change come together, learning and challenge each other, and making their change dreams become reality. For some, I’m inspirational, I’m brave, and I’m strong. For others, I’m just a blind lady, a disabled person, one who is incapable, who relies on the society. For me, I’m neither. I\'m Joanne, my last name is not Inspirational, nor Blindness, I’m just me, and I happen to be blind, but blindness does not, and would not define me. I have the dream to change the attitude and perception of people with disability, within people with disability, by empowering ourselves to be self-sufficient. I wish to plant, grow, and nurture a next generation of “kantharis”, the agent of change within people with disability in Australasia and the Pacific islands, and using ourselves as the engine or role model of others, so that we can all become living kanthari, the ones who spice up the food, are healthy for society, and the lives of many more.
