Image: I have short brown hair with deep chocolate eyes. I am not skinny, but by no means do I consider myself fat (I am lovably chunky). I am in a wheelchair but that does not stop me! Lastly, I require a trach and ventilator at all times.

I am an 18-year-old undergraduate student. I was born with Ulrich Muscular Dystrophy, severe scoliosis, respiratory failure, and more diagnoses that would take a while to write. I have been in a wheelchair almost all of my life. I require a trach and ventilator to breathe, a g-tube for supplemental liquids, and a med-port for IV medications. Currently, I am studying at The University of Akron with a major in Communications: Media Studies and a minor in Spanish. I have written various journalistic style pieces for a few years, receiving my first experience in 2016 during a Post-Secondary course at Ashland University. I am a News Contributor for The Buchtelite, the student-run paper at The University of Akron. I am open to writing about almost any topic that an editor or other reporter assigns. However, my preferences are news stories about local events (I grew up in a small town).
