My new love is CrossFit! I absolutely love it! I would love to attend the Reebok Games that happen every year! So far with the help of CrossFit and the Paleo diet since June 22nd I have lost a total of 44 pounds! My balance has gotten so much better and my muscles are getting stronger! I'm doing things like air squats, pull-ups, and for the first time in my life sit-ups! I love my my CrossFit family. They're all amazing!
The illustration you drew of me in my National Miss Amazing dress. It’s absolutely gorgeous. It brought me to tears when I first saw it!
Graduate college! After 8 years of hard work I finally made it! I graduated on May 10th, 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Communication and a minor in Sociology from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
The full reason as to why I was born with Cerebral Palsy. For my own curiosity, so I can have a better understanding of what happened.
My dream is to write a book about my life to inspire people all over the world and be a motivational speaker!
