I first got interested in songwriting when I was sixteen-years-old after discovering I had a passion for writing and I wanted to explore more ways that I could expand my creativity with my passion for writing.
It wasn’t until a friend of mine recommended I go into songwriting and at first, I was reluctant to start writing songs cause I didn’t think I would get anything of it but, I’m so glad I decided to take that leap of faith and start writing songs.
When I’m writing a song I suddenly forget about the lack of mobility I have on the left side of my body due to my Cerebral palsy and gain the confidence to share my story and connect with others who are just like me and help them overcome the obstacles and challenges they may face in society as someone with Cerebral palsy.
Being a songwriter with Cerebral Palsy has allowed me to leave an impact on society and allow me to say take it or leave it this is me and my story.
Being a songwriter has allowed me to truly express myself in a healthy way versus keeping all my emotions inside and bottle up to the point where I don’t know how to express that positive vs the negative way.
Being a songwriter has given me the strength to keep going and keep striving to be the best person I could be as an individual with Cerebral palsy and I feel like I’m unstoppable and the possibilities are endless.
Songwriting has allowed me to leave an impact on the world about living with cerebral Palsy and how I see the world as someone living with a condition that really isn’t understood unless you live with it.
Being a songwriter has allowed me to embrace every moment of my life and enjoy the lessons that living with a disability has taught so far.
Being a songwriter has given me the ability to tell my story to the best of my ability without worrying that people would judge me for it and the way I tell it being a songwriter has allowed me to be who I really want to be despite the fact I use a chair to get around in society .
Being a songwriter has allowed me to have a voice for those with Cerebral palsy and their obstacles and their struggles and it allows me to figure more ways I can advocate and make our society a better place for those with Cerebral palsy and the next generation of people that will be diagnosed with Cerebral palsy.
Ultimately, I’m extremely thankful for songwriting and what it has given me as someone with Cerebral palsy.
