About Me

Giuseppe Pagano is a writer and disability advocate from Central New York. He attends the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in magazine journalism in May. He seeks to turn his experiences with a physical disability into societal change. He began “The Wheelchair Quarterback” blog in July 2015 to write about his experiences with a disability as well as columns about news, sports, politics. During his time at Newhouse, he has written for The Daily Orange, Syracuse’s independent, student-run newspaper, and other campus publications.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
