Hey, y’all! I’m Elizabeth and I’m a freshman in high school. I love learning, art, being active, and, well, just about everything!
AND, just like you, I have scoliosis. I had never seen any information about or researched scoliosis until fall of 2020. After a huge growth spurt during COVID, my parents noticed my shoulders were uneven. After some at-home checks, we went to the orthopedist, who told us that I had two large curves (with the top one almost 60 degrees) and recommended surgery asap. Just a few months later, in April 2021, I had a spinal fusion (T3-T10) (I never had to brace because of the time and condition of my diagnosis), and I’m all the better for it. Now I’ve got a much straighter back and a whole lot more scoliosis knowledge.
I am so excited to be a part of Curvy Girls!! When I was going through the toughness of facing my diagnosis and what was to come, I didn’t really have the chance to interact with girls who knew what I was going through. But now, I get to help support girls all over Georgia! Can’t wait to see you!
