In November 2010, my promising cheerleading career was cut short by a spinal injury. In warmups at a competition, I was injured resulting in two slipped discs in my lower spine, which caused temporary paralysis in both of my feet with severe pain. While I did not have complete sensation in my feet I could still walk with assistance. I was told I would never run again and that I would be lucky if I was physically active in my future. As a 17-year-old, this was very difficult to hear.

At home, I had several friends I’d known since grade school, girls I’d played Rainbow Soccer with and stuck close to in middle school. I’d had a couple of boyfriends, and gotten my heart broken more than once.
Adversity has touched my life in a number of ways, but something that I have continued to struggle with over the past two months is a concussion. On November 8th, 2017, I was kicked in the head during a high school soccer playoff game. The kick made me feel dizzy, and although I played the rest of that game, I had to visit my doctor soon after. My doctor told me to sit out the rest of the soccer season and I watched as my team struggled in the state finals, ultimately losing. The first guess for my complete recovery was mid December.

I was able to go to my little brother’s kindergarten graduation and my younger sister’s 5th-grade graduation which was a positive note to all that has happen. Overall, the experience of a concussion was terrifying and something I will never
At the age of nine, I was diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety. At the time I was unsure of what those words meant, although I soon learned very well from my classmates. I was harassed most of every day in school for being different, and it continued into middle school. At my first sleepover, three girls thought it would be funny to draw tears on my face and cuts on my arms with permanent marker while I was sleeping. I discovered later that day they had also taken pictures of me and posted them to Facebook.

I told myself that I was going to play the homecoming game because we were playing the worst team in the state and figured I couldn’t hurt myself any worse, failure number two. That game I ended up tearing my ACL on the 8th play of the game, and just like Tony Gwynn’s world, three strikes you’re out. Indeed I was, I was out for six months with five months of therapy.
