I was born a normal baby girl but ended up getting very sick at age four with a condition. However, the doctors didn’t understand the reason of the condition, the symptoms. First, it was cerebral palsy, but as I got older, they took more tests and gave me several different medication to take. They told my mom I was not going to walk or do anything for myself. As I got older, I surprised them more and more. I also went to school, never once wanting to stay home because of the teasing. I overcame what the doctors and others said I would not do. I was always on honor roll, and I dress myself sometimes. I feel like I had to work extra harder to prove myself. I had a mother who liked to walk, so we walked to most of my doctors’ appointments. I graduated and also worked at the same time. I did have a few challenges in my life, but I would tell myself, “Keisha, you have this. You’ve been through everything, more than you can imagine, but it’ll just make you stronger.” I overcame so much in my life. My goals are to encourage everyone going through the challenges we all face in life to never give up and to never allow anyone to label you. Having my kids was the bigger blessing because of the condition I have; I have three healthy babies. I had to learn what worked for me and what I wanted. Some people will tell you what they think, but remember, you have your own mind and your own life. Just because you have a disability, doesn’t mean you can’t do things. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
