After being diagnosed with FA at the age of 15, I had two choices. I could choose to curl up into a little ball and let FA take over, or I could choose to live my life to the fullest each and every day! With the support of my family and friends, we rose united and were not willing to let FA determine our future.
In spite of FA, I chose to Keep Moving Forward with the mentality that Impossible Is Nothing. I graduated from a 4-year university, got a job at the Nike World Headquarters, live independently with my three housemates, and am currently in graduate school at the University of South Florida.
I am 25 years old and am pursuing an MBA and Masters in Sport & Entertainment Management and completing my residency at the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning made it to the Eastern Conference Finals this year and lost Game Seven to the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburg Penguins. We will come back stronger than ever next season. I hope that it will one day lead to a career in professional sports.Add a comment
