Diandre Incera is a visually impaired 7th grader at Fienberg-Fisher K-8 Center whose famous life motto is “I’ll give it a try.” He has never let his disability impede his participation in any school or life activities. Diandre chooses to concentrate on his enhanced senses, rather than focus on his inability to see. He can recognize people by their footsteps, and has a gift for music.
Diandre is known by teachers, staff and peers to be adaptable to any situation, and puts forth effort to participate in all activities. Diandre is always open to suggestions, and is known around campus for his incredible kindness. You might see him learning how to navigate the streets of South Beach with his orientation and mobility teacher, as independence is a life goal.
Diandre participates in Special Olympics, playing basketball, soccer and bowling. Diandre took on the challenge of an overnight camping fieldtrip in the Everglades, even Slough Slogging. The next time anyone is faced with a challenge, a recommended strategy is thinking of Diandre and saying “I’ll give it a try!”
