Sade Walker – Autho

In 2019, Sade created the H.E.R.O. Restore Project to educate the youth on bullying among those with disabilities. This platform allowed parents and their children to share their experiences with bullying while living with their disabilities. The first of many workshops was held at the Princess Elizabeth Centre in March 2020 before the closure of the nation’s borders and country lockdown.

With the Covid-19 restriction measures, under the umbrella of the H.E.R.O. Restore Project, Sade started writing short stories – H.E.R.O. Bullying & Disability Stories. She hopes the lessons from the Project will reach them while they are young so they will continue to become H.E.R.O. to all.

Leisurely, Sade enjoys badminton, swimming, 5K walks, martial arts, pottery and learning a new language. With strong family support and more than a decade of multifaceted experience working within the Ministry of Education in Trinidad and Tobago, Sade continues to reach high and strive for excellence while unconsciously giving others permission to do the same.
