Hi everyone! I want to say thank you for allowing me to be a part of this blog. I am looking forward to sharing my life experiences with you in the hope that I can encourage and inspire all of you to keep chasing your dreams. My motto is “Focus On My Abilities, NOT My Disabilities.”
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am 18 years old. I live in South Plainfield, N.J. (for now), and I am a senior in high school. I am an only child but consider my dogs Sprout and Missy part of my family. I plan on going to college while pursuing my dream of becoming a professional singer and performer.
I was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome about five years ago. I also have Asperger’s among other disorders. For me, I look at my differences as an advantage. If you can learn to be positive about challenges that you face on a daily basis, then you can do anything!
I am chasing my dreams. Last year, I auditioned for a national television show on Bravo called “The Kandi Factory”. On May 7, my episode will air at 10 p.m. I hope you tune in, and if you’re local, come down to our viewing party and watch it with me.
“The Kandi Factory” is a singing competition. I already consider myself a winner because I did not let my disabilities stop me from chasing my dreams, and I never will stop chasing them.
I thought it would be really cool to write a song for the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome. How about we do it together?? Why don’t you all send me some of your ideas? I can’t wait to meet everyone and I hope that you are all having a GREAT day! Thank you for inviting me to be a part of this great blog.
