Where I’m From Challenge
As part of my job as a writing fellow, I was asked to write a poem introducing myself to the class. When I first read the instructions...
My Beautiful, Complicated Life.
I was born with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a rare, degenerative disorder. Having limited mobility, I've been in a power wheelchair since I was three-years old.
Many people don't understand what my life is like and what obstacles I face every day, mostly because up until now I've been too scared to let people in.
But now I am ready to share pieces of my life with you. I want to break down barriers and let people into my life, a life filled with joy and laughter but also heartache. I invite you to laugh, scream, cry, and cheer along with me.
Every body has a story. This is mine with SMA.
