WE Don't get no good service in school. We sit in a classroom with no windows...no vends..Its a closet.
I get serve nose bleeds and spasms in a room like that. I turn colors, my hands get struck and many more
Dangerous environment...doctor wrote a letter and said i must not be in a room like that.. Do any care? Did anyone look into it..
We get no respect with special needs.
High school was a place I honestly was making a choice not to attend but my teachers always believe in me and I believe in myself.
Now I am in my 3rd year making it that best and it was easy. I am a honor student with physical limitations.. I can see I am proud of my self. Just like I was saying no college I made up my mind to say no matter what my situation is they have to find a way to accommodate me.
A new chapter of my life is about to start. I don't know things world turn out but I am hoping for the best turn out because it will be my senior year and I want to be well set for college...I know it will be a lot of work for mostly me but also my parents and my support team. I have to remember to separate my everyday life from my education, So I will continue success in a positive attitude like I promise too and I realize I can make it and it feels good in my body and soul.
Will Keep posted on my senior year journey
On the day I visit a college campus for the first time. I have learn so much... Just being on a tour I face many challenges.. So amazed college itself.. not all buildings doors was automatic... The campus was huge. I knew no matter how independent I get every time I turn I will need someone with me. My physically needs is the reason why... which is the one part of my CP life that sucks... You have to fight for everything we need I really thought fighting for services to get a good education will be over but I guess not it's getting worst. People always ask me why do I have such a passion for my advocate dream and all what I experience everyday is the reason why
A few weeks ago I was just so frustrated with college stuff at the end of submitting my college application I felt excited and free because I did it all on my own no one helped me. Now a few days ago I was and kinda still is overwhelmed with my dreams getting pushed away and denied all the time. People can say what can't happen.. but it's not what I believe. I will not accept my wheelchair as being apart of me for the rest of my life until the point is meet and I face with the problem. In my mind is only me on many of my journey's. During these moments I'm never me.
The days and months is counting down... An event that I'm proud of..So proud to see a person with physical limitations make it this far. I honestly say "on my own" If it was not for the people in my life that stayed on me encouraging me to work hard I probably would have all 65's on my transcripts..not 80s and 90s ...being such an honor student for 4 years.. now its official I am at the end..more stressful challenges..more things to do.. more on my shoulder.... College I spoke about wanting to attend but my point of view..Being hopefully is all I can say.. So I can have a successful path in the fall..
No answers for me on my own future after high school I hope I can leave a proud one not like all disable thrown in one "hole"
Keeping Updates on this process..!
