“My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit as well as physically.”
— Stephen Hawking

As millennials in today's world, we all face certain challenges. Adding a disability and other chronic diagnoses to the mix makes it all seem insurmountable. But the one thing a diagnosis or living in today's world cannot take from me is my attitude. I live in the present moment and whatever challenge I go through, that's a lesson for me to learn from. It is an opportunity to grow. Throughout my struggles over my twenty-three years of life -- muscular dystrophy, multiple surgeries, a stroke, amongst many more -- I continually remained positive through the darkness. My attitude was always my weapon. And with that, I will never be conquered. 

I want to share my life -- my struggles and celebrations, my trials and tribulations -- with the hope that someone, somewhere is moved by my journey and will become more mindful of the life they're leading, and their outlook towards it. If I can do that much by sharing my story, it will all be worth it.
