America Cerebral Palsy

I am a 21-year-old woman who fights for acceptance and finds my way around each barrier that plants itself ahead of me in everyday experiences. Throughout my 21 years of life, I have realized that education gives people the power needed to make this world the understanding and accepting place it strives to be.

I believe Cerebral Palsy (the movement and muscle disability I obtained shortly after birth due to lack of oxygen to my brain) is the most significant educational tool I have when it comes to being an advocate and helping society understand the importance of acceptance.
