How putting my heart & soul into everything I did changed my life

Heart & Soul

Hi, I'm Jessica and I have a disability... Cerebral Palsy to be exact. You can't exactly hide the fact that you have CP. It's there and it's for the world to see. It took me years to be okay with having a disability, I never admitted it to myself or anyone else. If someone asked why I walked with a limp, I would brush it off and answer with a simple "I was born like this" and then walk away feeling ashamed and embarrassed. I always wanted it to just go away, so bad that I would have dreams at night of me walking "normal".

Even though I have a big Italian family and a ton of friends I always felt so alone, I felt like no one truly understood my disability. It was after a horrible breakup when I realized that I had to accept who I was and love myself for every little "flaw" that makes me who I am. I had to change my mindset to think positive, and once I did my life changed for the better. Shortly after I met my fiancé who supported my dream and gave me the push to help as many people with CP as I could.

I recently I put my heart and soul into creating a blog called Eyeliner and Empowerment and a YouTube channel called Jessica Marie. I've been sharing stories and tips and tricks on how to live a positive life with Cerebral Palsy. I have now decided to dedicate my life to helping people know that they aren't alone, and that so many people understand what you’re going through.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
