Program Speaker

Close up photo of UOD program speaker Jacob Myers, a smiling 27 year old white man with glasses and a mustache and beard.

Jacob Myers is 27 and lives with his family, including his dog Cosmo, in Bedford, MA. He began speaking for UOD with the Lexington program and has since shared his story and answered questions in Newton, Wakefield and North Reading.  He also speaks for the Best Buddies program.  He loves speaking because he gets to meet people, form real connections, and interact with students and answer their questions.  Jacob works at Whole Foods in Bedford, MA, and encourages everyone to say hi to him next time you see him there!

ADVANCE RSVP IS REQUESTED. Registration is now closed.  Thank you for your support!

Allergy friendly and accessible. If you have any questions, please Email us at info@understandingourdifferences.org .
