It has been far too long since I posted on my blog. Senior year has been crazy busy right up until graduation last weekend. I was chosen by the staff of Jackson High School to speak at graduation and I wanted to share my speech with you.
In the time since my last post, so much has happened.
I was accepted to Western Washington University where I will be pursuing a degree in Psychology. I went to Orlando, along with 30 other Sunshine Kids to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of that wonderful organization . I ran the light board and Brandon ran the spotlight for my community theater's production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and we saw the show on Broadway when we were in New York for spring break . After spring break the countdown to graduation began. I completed my senior project, attended numerous senior events and award ceremonies, danced the night away with my friends at prom, and received a standing ovation from the entire school when I was awarded a staff scholarship at the senior recognition assembly. Since I returned to school, I have often felt invisible, but in that moment I knew that people had noticed my struggle to Get Back to Life.
Thank you all for the love and support you have shown me over the past few years.
