I was born blind and with a severe facial cleft, a Tessier Cleft, in 1986.
I started school when I was 2 and a half and had people coming to my home to teach me before that.
I've had 66 reconstructive surgeries to date to build up the bone structure in my face.
I went to and graduated from public schools in December 2003, 6 months ahead of my class with a GPA above 3.0.
I am currently working on my autobiography tentatively titled, The Messenger Unveiled.
I've been doing public speaking since I was a child. Topics include blindness, Clefts *Tessier, Lip and Palate*, bullying, caring for your other children while you have a child in the hospital, and self-esteem.
I currently live with my family in Michigan.
