Where do you call home? This is difficult because my parents are divorced and I’m close with all of my family members. However, I live with my mom and my stepdad. We are currently in the process of selling and moving to a home that was built handicapped accessible. It is all one level and is a bigger house and will be easier to get around because it doesn’t have stairs. I live in New York but I have family and friends who I count to be family; so I have to say my home is the world!
Education (degree(s): I graduated high school in 2014, which feels like forever ago already. I went to a small town school, which had 250 students from Pre-K to 12. Brookfield Central School is where I have my roots planted, but my tree is still growing. My future goals are honestly possibly never going to be easy to stick to just one thing. I have what they call: Peter Pan Syndrome, which has been a blessing. I’m currently enrolled in the New York Institution of Photography, which is all online. It has been great and I have been learning a lot more. Photography is one of my passions and will always be one with or without FA. One of my other goals is to get a degree in some sort of education. I love kids, but elementary school is not my calling. Teaching 7-12 or even higher education is more what I’m leaning toward. In January, I will be going back to college in Syracuse, New York; SUNY Onondaga Community College. It has not been easy, but I will do it and encourage anyone else with FA to go, if you're able to. When it comes to FA, it can add stress, depression and frustration to anyone on a “good day”. However, I don’t want it to “take over my life” anymore and I’m done having that feeling. It’s easy to get, especially if you just stop pushing and giving up. YES! FA is not easy to deal with for anyone, but I have come to realize that it can’t control me or my future. I have gained a lot more HOPE over the past 6 months then I have had the past year!
