We found out that my cousin was diagnosed with scoliosis so my mom checked my brothers and I when she noticed my back had a curve to it.  I was eight when I went to the doctor and they told me I had scoliosis. When I was ten my curve got worse so I had to get fitted to wear my first back brace. I finally grew a little as did my curve, so I just got my second brace in May.


I enjoy cheerleading and volleyball. In my spare time, I help out around the house with chores. We live in the country. I like doing flips on my trampoline, swimming or going on the zipline over our pond.


I think that it is important for new kids to know that they are not alone.  These meetings are very helpful and fun to be part of. I want to know that I am helping somebody to know they are not alone. Having scoliosis is very hard because you might be the only one at your school with it.
