My name is Chana and I am eleven years old. I happen to be in a wheelchair, I was born with Spina Biffida, so I have lived with this condition all my life. I am really not so different than kids my age. I just happen to be in a wheelchair, and sometimes I get blinding headaches, which is a sure sign my shunt is malfunctioning. So far its been good though and I am doing well.
I started my first year of Middle school back in August, some kids and adults too sadly think that just because i am in a chair, that somehow means I can not learn well I am actually in AP classes at school (Advanced Placement) and I am doing quite well thank you. I love to read, and write, and one day would like to write books for young adults, to teach them that people with disabilities are not all that different.
I like school but today was the last day until the Monday after thanksgiving and the truth is I am glad, I can relax and catch up on some reading, watch some shows, go to church, hang out with friends, without worrying about school. Not to mention Thanksgiving with all that delicious food, I am growing hungry just thinking about it.
Well I better go, my assistant dog needs to go out, before I can kick back and watch television, so this is it for now.
Until next time
Chana Corrine Fern!
