Until I was 19 years old, I’d never seen anyone fully open up about their health online. When I was a teenager, I assumed I was the only one whose panic attacks seemed to consume them and the only one whose cerebral palsy appeared virtually invisible.

I had no idea that other people struggled with their mental health in some of the same ways I did, and I was so ashamed of my disability that I hid it as soon as I could.

Taking pride and ownership in health and sharing personal experiences navigating health conditions seemed completely foreign to me.
