Coleman and DOUA
Coleman is a vital and important member of the DOUA - Disabled Online Users Association- family. He is a mentor, which means that he has graduated from student and is capable and willing to assist other members. Coleman mainly helps others in DOUA with html, templates and anything to do with computers. (Sorry I don't know a lot of computer lingo. I should because Coleman has mentored me so much!)
But the most important part of Coleman being a mentor is his ability to empathize with others who are having a difficult time. He says the right words, goes out of his way to contact members and is always available for chats. Coleman has been through a lot in his life. So when someone is hurting, he understands.
His jokes and sense of humor are a great add to the mixture too. We never know what Coleman will post! That makes being part of DOUA not only a place to learn but a place to have some good ole fashioned fun too.
