Jordyn Zimmerman

Jordyn Zimmerman obtained her bachelors degree in Education Policy from Ohio University and is currently a graduate student at Boston College.

Diagnosed as autistic, technology helped open Jordyn's world and she has since been advocating for other students through a series of speaking engagements. An avid typist and advocate for all students, Jordyn helped to make The Ohio Speech and Debate Association more inclusive. She also founded the Ohio University Sparkle Effect team; the seventh, inclusive collegiate team in the nation. In 2017, she was recognized by the International Council for Exceptional Children with the "Yes I Can!" Award. All of this is just the beginning, as Jordyn is passionate and determined to make a difference in the world of education — making sure every student exercises their right to a truly inclusive education.
