Let me first begin by saying Hello!
Yesterday I posted my ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video & I have to say that the response has been phenomenal! A number of people have said that they’d like to hear more from me. Hence the blog.
Probably a good start to let you know a bit about myself.
My name’s Jorden better known as Pixie, I’m 24 years old & since birth have lived with Spastic Cerebral Palsy. I say lived with because I don’t like the term suffer with. Yes I have bad days & even really bad days but I also have good days.
I choose to push myself everyday & am lucky enough to say that I have amazing friends & family who pushed me too. Thanks to them, I now honestly believe that I can do anything - I just have to do it my way!
I’m a Swansea Uni Graduate
& for a number of years now I’ve worked full time.
I love it! I love earning money that I can spend & boy can I spend!
The above pictures are taken from my day of birth (or just after) weighing just 3lb13oz & not given the best outlook on life by the Doctors. The second is from yesterday’s Icebucket challenge. I’m more than glad & extremely grateful the Doctors were wrong! (Ironically I’m currently undertaking my own weight lose challenge)!
I hope this blog helps to eradicate some of the stigmas that disabled people still face everyday & highlight that CP or no CP I’m just a quirky, fun loving, handbag addict, take on the world kinda girl!
