Fight Like A Warrior's Ambassador Program was launched in January 2022 and has introduced a new cohort each year since then. Ambassadors are from around the world, have various conditions, are at different parts of their own chronic illness journeys, and come from all walks of life. They represent the diversity that can be found throughout the chronic illness community. Each ambassador was chosen because of their commitment and passion for advocacy, as well as our shared vision in supporting those battling chronic health conditions.
Our goal with the Ambassador Program is to uplift the voices of positive, influential advocates within the chronic illness community. Fight Like A Warrior provides our ambassadors with the opportunity to express their thoughts and experiences on a variety of topics through our shared platforms. With this collaboration we aim to give them the agency to authentically connect with those affected by chronic illness and allies, alike.
Applications for our Ambassador Program are currently closed, but reopen yearly. If you, or someone you know, are interested in being an ambassador we encourage you look for the announcement of when we're accepting applications on our website, social media, and newsletter. Our Deputy Director of Operations, Valerie Gacula, would be happy to address any further questions/comments. You may reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

why i advoCate
I advocate for communities that need a voice and a strong voice. Growing up I was always told to not talk about my disability, health, or chronic illness. I advocate so that as a world we can normalize words like “disability” and “chronic illness”.
Alicia Grace, a motivational speaker, a college graduate in Early childhood education, and soon to be university student getting her BA in Disability Studies isn’t just your typical 23 year old! She is a brain tumour fighter and survivor, chronic illness warrior, and disability rights advocate. She lives her life to raise awareness and share her story. At a young age Alicia lost most of sight, but that never took away her vision to create change in the world.
