Back in 2011.I was faced with so much it was mostly the begining of my teenage life...the begining of high school or the ending of junior high school i struggled to find motorviation and confidence in my acadmics so I didn't plan on attending high school I plan on going to a trade school but my support team in my school saw the knowledge that I will succeed in high school and I did even though I often had days of giving up any student with a disability being a teenager will want acceptance, love and equality but in all I struggled to fit in high school as well as society. Which made it harder for me to accepted who I am and embraced all my challenges so I was over dwelling on my disability and I woke up the next day with a vision to share my story with the world and make a difference and speak up for those who don't have a voice for themselves. I didn't have much friends, they lack awareness of people with disabilities and of course the admission did not make things any better to them I was invisable one. After crossing the stage to graduating high school the hopeless feeling came down but the determine attitude I have I spoke up for myself before it got to late. I started college which was not expected of me.College open doors for me in the advocacy world and now I found many desires. I served on the NYSED Youth Advisory Panel on special education for 2 years and it was a wonderful experience but it does not end there I have been accepted to serve on another comitee and I started my own advocacy group called Voice's Of Power.. More details to follow.
I am blessed that these opportunities give me a different view on life:)
