I want to be an inspiration to disability students

Since I was a little girl I’ve always wanted to make a difference and teach people with how people see an open choice to things. I was bullied everyday throughout school, as I have a rare condition that I was born with that makes me a unique woman, so when I was growing up I had people who I looked up to like my family, my dad , my cousins, also well-known people like Adele , Michelle Obama etc….

I always have a visual with how I see things so I decided that taking photographs were a place that I could be myself and show a confidence into myself….

Adult education in this past 7 years from learning in the class and the volunteering in college and out that everyday I’m learning new things that has made me become confidence because I had the chance to follow my dream and show that disabled /syndrome students can go into higher education and with the right support can finish with degrees and awards.

I want to be an inspiration to disability students and let them have a visual like I have and make a dream your career.
