Gauged Unable To Continue – My Winning Essay in Disability Visibility Project’s Contest
**The featured photo is of an Xbox Adaptive Controller on a white background.**
I saw a tweet from AbleGamers about an essay contest being hosted by Disability Visibility Project. The topic was pretty open: it simply had to be related to being a disabled gamer. And the prize was pretty sweet: an Xbox Adaptive Controller with some accessories and game keys.
I’d been itching to try an XAC, but the price tag was hefty for something I wasn’t certain about. So after a lot of back-and-forth about whether or not to enter, I submitted a short essay about my experience with Final Fantasy XIV to the contest and hoped for the best.
Well, the best came: Disability Visibility Project has declared me one of two winners in the essay contest! Thank you so much to them for this wonderful honor and generous prize!
