Tonza Borden does not just write about disability; she experiences it. However, she has spent most of her adult life working in government, journalism, public affairs and international banking. She graduated from Georgia Military College with a degree in management. Her unfortunate dependence on Social Security Disability Insurance and Medicare health coverage has taught her how benefits work. Her persistent determination to recover self-reliance set her on a path of researching work incentives and other integrated resources. She has revealed many little known governmental "assets" for disabled and low-income people to make dreams of career, entrepreneurship and home ownership come true. She has authored many articles for a variety of audiences and a financial primer. Her new work is Disability Empowerment: Free Money for Disabled Americans to Make Dreams Reality, written specifically for people with disabilities who want to become self-sufficient.
"What a great book. Lord knows you did your homework! Your book without doubt is an immensely essential definitive work. What's great is you have constructed a user-friendly book as procedures can evolve to something complex. As far as I am concerned, the book is very important to the day-to-day function of disabled people and their caregivers, and of course it's an important addition to my library." -- W. H. Hollins, Atlanta, GA
