At a regular doctor appointment, my doctor noticed my back was curved. She sent me to a specialist and I found out I had scoliosis. I was 12. A few weeks later, I got my brace, which I have to wear at least 18 hours a day. I also went to a physical therapist for a week and learned Schroth exercises that I have to do 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
My mom and I looked for a support group because I wanted to meet other girls going through the same thing as me, but we didn't find one, so I decided to start a Curvy Girls group for our area.
I like to read, dance, craft, play violin, and spend time with friends.
