  1. It’s okay to still have to figure out things – during the pandemic I’ve been learning that it’s okay to have to learn new ways to adapt to the world and it’s okay to be overwhelmed doesn’t make you any less stronger than what you are.
  2. Your story is Your story embrace it to the best of your ability- while in the pandemic I’ve gotten the opportunity to share my experiences and my story and have no shame in my story flaws and all and I’m embracing it.
  3. Cerebral palsy makes living during the pandemic more of an adventure – it’s no secret that having Cerebral palsy has made my life more an adventure but during the venture – it’s no secret that having Cerebral palsy has made my life more an adventure but during the pandemic it made it more of an adventure that I’m constantly on every day.
