What a journey, tomorrow I will be Graduating from Va-LEND!
A leadership project is required for me to graduate from this program. By becoming a Leadership presenter, I gained various skills and developed my presence as a speaker/presenter, which led to my dream job and improved how I tell my story. The part I like most about LEND is working on case studies of kids who show signs of a disability. Sharing my perspective on how my background blends with what I have learned throughout my life. I have gained a more comprehensive understanding of the challenges faced by a family with a disabled child. Having the ability to communicate effectively with other mothers who have children with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities and act as their cheerleader.
I am grateful to LEND for strengthening my leadership skills. I have also learned to share my story through speaking engagements in classrooms and podcasts through LEND; I will be forever indebted to LEND. If I do not give the naked truth about life with cerebral palsy, autism, or any other disability, who else will?
This is my leadership Project.
