Interview with Charli (Guest interview #19)

Charli and I met on Twitter, and we are now good friends. Be sure to check her out on social media.  🙂

  1. What is your name? Charli Dee, but everyone just calls me Charli!
  2. Who has inspired you the most in life and your blogging and or YouTube channel? My family!  My blog is all about sharing my experiences to inspire others. Those who are familiar with my blog might notice that I mention my family quite often in my posts, and the reason for that is my experiences with them are often my inspiration!
  3. Besides writing or making YouTube videos, what do you like to do in your spare time? I love spending time with family! We love watching movies and tv shows together! It’s always so much fun! Some activities are just more fun when you are doing them with others! I also love reading. It’s one of my go to activities when I want alone time. It’s so relaxing to me.

4. Name a bad habit that you have? I can be pretty stubborn, and tend to learn things the hard way!

5. Name your best quality? I’d like to think I’m caring and compassionate. I tend to let others be the judge of this though.

6. If you could interview anyone living or dead who would it be and why? Oh this is a tricky one! I’ve been asked this before, and my answer always changes because there are a number of people I would like to meet! If I had to pick one though, it would probably be Mariah Carey. I’ve been a fan of hers since I was a little girl, so it would be great to meet her!

7. What is the title of your blog or YouTube channel? The name of my Blog is Life With Charli.

8. When and why did you start your blog or YouTube channel? I started my blog in March of 2019. I’ve always loved writing, and had been considering starting a blog for a long time before I finally set one up. I just never had the time. I finally made time in 2019! I wanted to use my love of writing to help inspire others, and that is the focus of my blog!

9. Where do you see yourself in five years? I would like to think that, over the next five years, my blog will have really grown into a very successful one. I hope to have a number of collaborations under my belt by then with other bloggers and companies. So far my blog has been getting a lot of great feedback, so I’m very excited to keep the momentum going and seeing what the future holds.

10. What is the name/cause of your visual impairment (or other disability that you may have)? I have a genetic disorder called Turner Syndrome. It is  when a girl is born with one of her X chromosomes fully or partially missing (boys generally have an X and a Y chromosome, while girls generally have two X chromosomes. I’m sure most people know this already though). The condition can lead to a lot of different complications, including learning disability.

11. How does your visual impairment (or other disability that you may have) effect you on a daily basis? The type of learning disability I have affects my processing speed. I usually take a long time to complete tasks that would take others just a few minutes. I often need help from others, or for others to understand that I might take a while to finish whatever assignments are asked of me.

12. What do other people feel about your visual impairment (or other disability that you may have)? People usually believe that I don’t have a disability at all, because my disability is invisible. It’s not very easy to tell that I’m a person with a disability when first meeting me. However, after getting to know me, the signs are there. Since people usually assume that I don’t have a disability, proving that I do in order to get the help I sometimes need is often very difficult.

13. 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? I have had so much doubt placed on my disability status that sometimes I start to have doubts myself. However, in the end, I know myself and my limitations enough to recognize that my struggles are very real. To those who also have invisible disabilities, I would say your disability is valid. Your struggles are valid. Don’t doubt yourself, and advocate for yourself until someone listens.

14. Where can other people find you on Social media (Please list and provide links) I can be found on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Bloglovin. Feel free to reach out to me on all or some of these platforms and say hello! Links to my social media pages are below:
