Welcome to the official page of Bethany A. Hoppe! Bethany is an advocate for women & girls with disabilities as a writer, speaker, performer and director in film and integrated theatre through Bethany Productions©. Her innate style of humor, poignancy, and inspiration draws audiences together and leaves them feeling motivated, inspired, and informed. Bethany is currently developing on her latest project Pennhurst: The Women Speak an artistic visualization of what women with disabilities would have and should have been like had they not been institutionalized, via photography, academic disability history research, and personal narrative. Check out Bethany's Calendar of Events to keep up with her speaking engagements & appearances! Bethany is proud to announce that she will be a TED Speaker for TEDxNashville, March 2014! This independently organized TED Event will be held in Nashville's TPAC Polk Theatre! Born with Spina Bifida, Bethany uses her life experiences to share simple truths about living in a diverse society first as a woman, and second as a woman with a disability, one person, one classroom, and one audience at a time. Bethany identifies that spark of humanity that makes all of us so similar, yet so unique, and uses it as a powerful vehicle to educate her listeners. With honors in writing, film, acting, modeling, pageantry, and disabled athletics, Bethany fluidly connects people of all ages and interests to their own inner power and ability, while promoting a greater understanding and value towards our differences.
