Hi everyone! My name is Isabella and I am from Minneapolis. I am 14 years old. I was first diagnosed with Scoliosis when I was 11 years old, where I immediately began practicing the Schroth Method in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. My curves worsened over the course of 6 months or so to the point where I was prescribed a Rigo- Cheneau brace. My bracing experience has had its ups and downs, but through and through I have attended Curvy Girls meetings since the beginning. Curvy Girls provided a safe haven for both me and the friends I have made through this group. I am so excited to take on leadership and aid other girls and their parents through the scoliosis jungle.
Today, I continue both bracing 18 - 22 hours a day and practicing the Schroth Method 5 days a week. I love playing the piano, dancing, and I aspire to be a writer when I’m older. So excited to meet you!
