Being Disabled 2.0
My name is Becky and I was born with Cerebral Palsy. C.P is caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain and that means that I can’t talk or walk. I use a power wheelchair to move and I use a computer or word sheet which is form of book or on my tray. I have epilepsy and I am in pain sometimes.
I wanted to tell you that I’m not my disability! People can only see the disability not person inside. They think that someone who has a disability are not smart or can’t do things like normal person. Sometimes, People who have a disability think thats who they are and sometimes, they use their disability as their advantage. Its hard to be a normal person because of that.
Sometimes, I wish that I can speak and do things without someone else’s help and that frustrates me. I’m lucky to have my family and friends to help me out and I thank them for that.
You can do anything if you set your mind to it and its impossible. I found a way to be Vlogger by using the computer voice over as my voice.
We are like you and we just want to be treated like anyone else.
I wanted to rewrite my essay from high school because I wanted it to be refreshed and I had new thoughts this time.
I hope that you will enjoy reading this!
