#ADA30 Summit 2020

Sasha Ross Becker smiling headshotSasha Ross Becker is a graphic designer, illustrator and newly-minted speaker. Ross Becker was born in the great green hills of Middlesex, Vermont, and moved from the plant-filled hills of Vermont to the people-filled streets of New York City a few years ago. She underwent several surgeries due to a brain tumor, with resulting disabilities. A dedicated advocate for all people with disabilities, one of Ross Becker’s illustrations was selected and hung in Sen. Bernie Sanders’ congressional office in Washington, D.C., promoting disability inclusion. Through her graphic design work, illustrations and typography, Ross Becker demonstrates her keen ability to craft the message that a client is looking to convey.

Ross Becker’s diagnosis – a pilocytic astrocytoma brain tumor – was in 2007. Over the course of her life, Ross Becker helps those who have difficulty doing or saying what they want, and throughout this experience has developed a deeper understanding of disability advocacy and has learned and been trained to become a strong disability advocate.

Ross Becker’s love of traveling, eating food, playing instruments and listening to heartbeat-matching music, especially in the company of others, illustrate how very important it is for her to meet and connect with those around her. It is in this way that Ross Becker finds true, lifelong friendships and motivation are developed.
