I was an anomaly; I was a stillborn that still had a heartbeat but wasn’t breathing. Due to the
lack of oxygen from my mother’s uterus rupturing, I have mild Athetoid Cerebral Palsy, among other disorders. My parents were told that I wouldn’t walk, talk, or respond to certain sounds, but through years of therapy and determination, I am. I walk by using a walker, holding someone’s arm, or independently, although I sometimes use a powerchair for long distances. I talk verbally, and I sometimes type whatever I want to say out on my phone. I respond to what I want to. I can also stand up from the floor without help.

I’ve been a believer since I was very young, and it has played a huge role in my life.
