- When and why did you start your blog? I started blogging in February, 2016 because I wanted to have something to do besides going to college.
- Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years’ time, I would like to be living in my own place.
- What is the name/cause of your visual impairment (or other disability that you may have)? I have Cerebral Palsy (also referred to as CP). When I was born, I didn’t breathe. I was stillborn, but I was resuscitated, it took the doctors about twenty minutes to resuscitate me. As a result of me not breathing, in that period when my brain didn’t get the oxygen I needed, brain damage occurred. I was on a ventilator for two days; the ventilator took breaths for me by pumping oxygen around my body and into my brain. There were about three stillborn on that day, and I was the only one that survived. The doctors turned my life support down, so they could find out whether I would breathe on my own, and I did. I came off the ventilator on my sister’s birthday, which was a wonderful birthday present for her.
- How does your visual impairment (or other disability that you may have) effect you on a daily basis? I need support with almost everything; self-care, eating, drinking, dressing, ect.
- What do other people feel about your visual impairment (or other disability that you may have)? I don’t know, but I would like to think that it doesn’t bother them.
- If you had to give one piece of advice to others about having a visual impairment (or other disability that you may have) what would it be? Don’t give up, you’ll get there. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
