Before you watch Johnny’s interview with David, here’s what you should know about him:
After receiving an American Public Transportation Foundation scholarship, David Ledwitz went on to become one of the program’s shining success stories, working as a Management Analyst for Accessible Services at Valley Transportation Authority in San Jose, California. He’s responsible for compliance, safety, and training issues revolving around public transportation services available for people with disabilities.
David is so highly respected at his job, he’s the only Badass Project nominee to date who received three separate nominations from three different people. His dedication to making transportation accessible across the board is palpable and inspiring.
One other line from his nomination stuck out: “He’s a dynamo of energy who just happens to also be disabled.” David has never let cerebral palsy define him. He has many other definitions that suit him far better.
