Newton resident aims to educate about disabilities
MassBay student, Nathan Persampieri, of Newton, is on a mission to educate the community about people with disabilities. Persampieri is focused on what people with disabilities can accomplish, not what they cannot. Persampieri, who graduated Newton North in June 2019, is now a second semester freshman at MassBay, studying communication. Since coming to campus, he has joined the LEAD Leadership Program, has been elected as a senator for Student Government Associate, and is a member of the MassBay Accessibility Committee. Persampieri continues to volunteer with Understanding Our Differences to help bring awareness and understanding that disability is part of diversity. He has also helped bring the popular documentary, “Intelligent Lives,” to the Newton Public Library for a screening earlier this month. In December 2018, Persampieri was awarded the Newton Human Rights Award for his “work organizing an event series to watch and discuss movies focusing on people with disabilities” at his church.
