My nieces Ila, Ava, and me
at my birthday party
I have Cerebral Palsy, it effect my arms, my leg and I can’t talk. I use a Dynavox to communicate. I have to deal with depression. . I grow up in Waukegan. I attended a normal public school. When I was younger I played Special Olympics softball. In third grade I got my first communicate device. The device was big and it weighs 5 pounds. At 25 I moved out of my parents’ house into a nursing home. After 2 years being in a nursing home I move into my apartment at Over the Rainbow.
My challenges have made me to become more a successful person.
