Hi I'm Beatrice, I'm 13 and I'm in the 8th grade. I live in Washington and I enjoy playing volleyball, swimming, and camping with my family. I recently got a WCR brace. Before I had a Modified Boston Brace. We found out I had scoliosis when I was very young. I went in to get an x-ray to see if I had pneumonia. Thankfully, I didn't but they noticed that I had a curve in my back. The doctors then watched my curve and decided to brace at the age of 7, the summer before I started grade 2. When I got my brace my two main curves were in the 30 degree area but with the brace treatment I've had so far my two main curves are now 19 degrees. As well as attending a fair amount of Curvy Girls' meetings, I have been to one Curvy Girls convention in 2016.
I want to show girls that have scoliosis, there not alone. I wanted to be a Curvy Girls' leader ever since I went to my first Curvy Girls' meeting. This is a great way to meet people that have scoliosis. It's also a great way to connect with people that live near you and are going through the same thing.
