I am 32 years old and I have cerebral palsy and Marfan syndrome. I have been an ambassador for Best Buddies, giving speeches all across Illinois about ending usage of the R word, as well as having spoken in front on 2500 students at the Best Buddies Leadership Conference in Indiana, and 900 people at Best Buddies annual gala in Miami. I have served for the last two years on the Board of Directors for Tellin' Tales Theatre, a Chicago based organization with the mission of breaking down the barriers between the disabled and able bodied worlds through the power of personal story.
