    I have Spina Bifida and therefore I use a

    wheelchair to get around. I am very independent and ambitious and always doing things which is why I say I have a disability but I am not disabled. I don't let the chair stop me from living the life I want to live.

    Being disabled is not the problem,

    it's how you perceive yourself and how people react around you.. Stay strong and always stay positive!!!
