Hi! My name is Addison I live in NewOrleans LA. I live with my parents, 3 pets, and my little sister who unfortunately passed away. I am currently going into 7th grade next year. I love singing, writing, and volunteering to help other people.
My scoliosis journey started in 2020 when I was 10 years old. I was diagnosed with scoliosis at a regular doctor’s appointment. They said that my curve was at 25 degrees and that I needed to go into bracing. Luckily, I didn’t need to wear it at school. Yet I was very self-conscious about having to wear a back brace in front of my friends. I only knew one person with scoliosis and we rarely talked or even knew each other. One year later, I had to get an MRI scan to make sure I didn’t have anything else besides scoliosis. When we got the results back every thing looked good besides the fact that I had scoliosis. I am now 12 years old and doing great with my bracing.
I wanted to be a group leader to help other girls with their scoliosis journey and to help them feel less self-conscious about wearing their back brace. I am exited to be the Curvy Girls leader in New Orleans.
