Gold medals are my favorite. Yes, I scored a first place medal at the basketball skills tournament hosted by Cedar Hill High School. I competed against two other girls from different area schools and they won silver and bronze.
It was fun just seeing all my friends from other schools. It's amazing how everyone scores a medal at this event. My mom, dad, and Neader were so proud to watch me earn the gold!
The best part was being with my PE Partners who helped me get through all the skills at the event. They are so fun to be around and I also enjoyed their company at Babe's Chicken after the tournament. They are the best ... besides my teachers!

"There's more to me than just my special needs and my diagnoses. People are very curious about me and I don't mind sharing.
I was born with a rare disorder Feingold Syndrome which consists of my most noticeable characteristic,
Microcephaly (small head). Mommy says mine is cute and petite...just like me!
