Hi, my name is Georgelin Grant, and I'm from Jamaica. I was born with a condition called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita. ( a.m.c) Arthrogryposis , involves joint curvature and contractors in two or more areas of the body.
Few months after my birth, my parents were instructed by the district nurse to take me to the John Golding Rehabilitation Centre for the disabled.
At the center, I was taught how to manipulate my way through challenging tasks like dressing and feeding myself, and so forth,.
Between home and the center, and finally home now, I had to get more creative in doing things for myself. And it's not that I don't have help, but I have a very independent spirit, and not liking to be dependent on others all the time.
