think of me, I am educated, due to my eagerness to learn and my family's
support. I have two younger brothers (who are not disabled)
we are all well educated. Both of my brothers are in the
care field, but I can barely use a letter opener with my feet, so open heart surgery
wasn't an option. Plus, I don't ever clip my toe nails.
So, I decided to go into the tech field and have been working for Teacher Created
for some time now, but I am always looking to do
My family did not know what to do with me when it came to
school. My parents realized that I wasn't a basket
. So, getting an education was important.
was a school for the physically disabled. They had preschool
through high school. HELL NO, I wasn't going to be traped in
school throughout my entire education.
I have to give many thanks to my teachers at Carl Harvey for teaching
me the basic fundamentals for me to succeed. ..
After a while, I out smarted the system and my parents decided to mainstream
me in a regular Jr High. YES, *puberty*
hit during the right time and CHICS!!!
I went to Fountain Valley High School, where I lettered in Girls
Softball. I kept their stats and so on. High school
lots of fun. and lots of partying.
I received my AA degree at Orange Coast
. I wasn't planning to be a lifer at OCC, so
I transfer out of there as fast as I can and SEE YA!!!
I earned my BA in Speech Communication (ironic) at Cal State Long Beach
Now, I know what you are thinking, "the cripple kid got a free
pass.." Well, other than getting great parking at malls, I do not play
the cripple card, unless she is cute!!!
Besides school and my jobs, I am also on various organizations, such as
Department of Rehabilitation (ATAC), USC UCEDD
, Orange County Goodwill (ATEC)
and many others.
