I started cheering when I was five and I’m still doing it today. I was diagnosed with epilepsy 2 years ago even though it feels like yesterday. I was diagnosed when I had a gran mal seizure while riding in the car. My type of epilepsy is eyelid myoclonia. Its been a part of my life for as long as I remember but I couldn’t be officially diagnosed until I had the gran mal. I wish to earn my degree in mental health counseling one day. My inspiration for my future job is because of past experiences. At one point in life I was going through a very hard phase. That’s enough about me for now.

Age Diagnosed: 11
Location: USA
