Elijah Conger

My name is Elijah Conger, and I am a person with a disability and a power coach for Self Advocates United as 1 (SAU1). I am 26 years old and I live in Mercer County, PA. I recently moved from my family’s home into an apartment. I graduated from Slippery Rock University with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work in 2022, and I started working for SAU1 in November that same year. I wanted to work for SAU1 to help other people with disabilities get information and resources about self-advocacy and other important topics. As a power coach, I help give the presentations that we develop on these self-advocacy topics, both in-person and online. My favorite presentation is Your Vision for Your Everyday Life, because there is a lot of audience participation, and we help self advocates fill out some interactive tools. When I am not working, my hobbies include reading, drawing, theater, and singing in a local choir, the Bach Society.
