I discovered a secret as I got older.

The more I was able to stand out and not have to be compared to anyone else the more I realized I was meant to stand out. I just really always had pressure to do well even as a child, but I never used my disability to say I can’t work. I had the experience of community college but I had to take foundation courses before I could take college level courses. I really liked the school that I went to. I knew friends who went there but I had gotten into NYU school of professional studies and I decided to got to NJCU. I had an okay experience there but I am trying to just move forward with my goals and try to get a driving school to give me driving lessons. I want to be able to drive and I am also saving for my first vehicle.
