Welcome back to “Pushing Forward with Alycia | A Disability Podcast,” where we spotlight stories of resilience and triumph. In today’s episode, we welcome Ryan Hudson-Peralta, an accomplished designer, speaker, and advocate who has turned perceived limitations into avenues for innovation. Born without hands and with shortened arms and legs (congenital limb deficiency), Ryan has taken the words “motivation” and “unstoppable” to the next level!

Key Takeaways:

🎨 Harnessing Creativity: Ryan turned early life challenges into a powerful force for creative solutions, modifying everyday items to enhance his independence and later, the usability of digital platforms.

🗣 Power of Advocacy: With his son, Ryan founded Equal Accessibility, focusing on improving physical and digital spaces not only for those with disabilities but for everyone, advocating for truly inclusive environments.

🌐 Tech Innovator: Despite his physical differences, Ryan has excelled in the tech industry, designing apps and websites that prioritize accessibility and usability for all users.

🚀 Inspiring Future Generations: Through mentoring and sharing “cheat codes” with youth born with similar conditions, Ryan provides early solutions and support, fostering a more manageable path forward for the next generation.

🌟 Living Without Limits: Ryan emphasizes that the only limits in life are the ones we set for ourselves, a philosophy he lives by every day as he challenges societal norms and accessibility barriers.

Ryan’s story is not just about adapting to the world but reshaping it to welcome everyone without barriers. Join us in celebrating his achievements and learning from his relentless pursuit of equality and access.


Don’t be your own speed bump. The only thing that can stop you or slow you down is yourself.
