Daniel Hood Autobiography

Hello!☺   My name is Daniel Hood. I focus on policy and political news directly affecting the disability community, including housing, job placement, hobbies, talents, and dreams, and on telling their stories.  I conduct interviews, edit, record, and produce audio as part of my work. I am also in the process of developing an online radio station. These skills and experiences have equipped me to communicate the issues and stories of the disability community effectively.  I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, going to parks, swimming, hiking, computers, and doing and trying new things. I grew up in Forest Lake, Minnesota, with my brother Jason, my sister Beth, and my parents Bob and Patrice Hood.  I attended special education classes and Special Olympics, lived in a couple of group homes, and Adult foster care. My educational journey has been a significant part of my life. I graduated from Forest Lake and received my diploma through the North East Metro 916 Transition Program
