Tegdra Kelly-Samuel, Founder
Tegdra (Ted-druh) Samuel is a minister, author, advocate, educator, singer, songwriter and public speaker. She began her career as an elementary school teacher after graduating from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations, and a Master of Arts Degree in Teaching from Belmont University.

Tegdra started a non-profit organization, The Gifts of Mobility Foundation and her company Inspired Gifts & Talents Publishing, to connect with families of children with disabilities as her daughter, Jazzmin, was born with cerebral palsy. After experiencing many challenges in Jazzmin’s schools and virtually all areas of her life, she decided to become an advocate for people with disabilities to help lend a voice to the voiceless. Throughout the years, she worked tirelessly to find resources and to create opportunities for Jazzmin and her peers. The upclose and personal challenges have influenced her passion and desire to create an organization that provides a platform to offer solutions that promote inclusion.

Tegdra has dedicated her life to traveling and meeting with parents, teachers, and professionals to help them understand the technology that’s available for people with disabilities and helping them access the resources. She has written children’s books, the Big Brother Little Sister Series, and now completing a documentary called Jazzmin’s Journey to share God’s amazing power and inspire others. 
Tegdra currently resides in Florida and her hope is that through sharing her story, giving encouragement, providing equipment, and rendering support to families, that she can not only be a helping hand, but the face of turning challenges into triumphant joy!
