Hi my name is Jessica and I’m 20 years old and I have spina bifida. I’ve had it my whole life and certain things are hard for me. One of the things that is tough for me is accessibility. This is hard for me because I am confined to a wheelchair and I can not walk or stand.
Independence is also hard for many reasons. One reason it is hard for me is because I can not drive a car or go many places by myself. This reason is frustrating because I would love to do things on my own.
A few of my favorite hobbies are cooking, baking, coloring, and putting together puzzles. One of my favorite things to cook is a very delicious dinner called spinach and artichoke dip. I also love to bake pretty much any kind of dessert especially cookies. My favorite cookie is either a sugar cookie or chocolate chip.
