I was born 1lb.15 oz. premature at 6 months and at birth I was diagnosed with colpocephaly which is a congenital brain abnormality and malformation,and mild cerebral palsy. I also had to stay in the hospital for two months in order to be fully developed and reach a higher weight to be brought home. On the other hand,I always struggled when it came to keeping up with the other kids and I worked differently and at a slow pace in school, and growing up I always dealt with my learning disability and received help from my teachers. I was also placed in this special program in high school called the Ryken Progam. Furthermore,the teacher in the program helped me with my homework and tests papers that i needed to correct and I passed the program with a C average. However,I have a math disability called dyscalculia and have trouble multi-tasking for example like driving. Anyways,two years ago,however,unfortunately my grandmother passed away from stomach cancer in August of 2007. Then in September of 2007,I was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 22 and I was put on medication called keppra which controls my seizures. Finally,I have been working so hard to obtain employment but its so hard with my disability and some people just don't understand what i have been through and have to go through.
