I don’t want you to feel sorry for me as the poor, young, disabled girl. I don’t want you to look at me as this inspiring hero. I am neither of these things.
I was weeks away from graduating college, I had a job in foreign country, had plane tickets in my hand and a scholarship in my bank account. Then I fell.
The strangest compliment I've ever received was: “You don't look like you're in a wheelchair.”
