Spastic Diplegia

I am a 20 year old girl in the first year of Psychology at the Universidad Latina de Panamá.

I suffer from Spastic Diplegia, a type of motor cerebral palsy, because, during my mother’s pregnancy, I did not get enough oxygen and I was affected by the frontal part of the brain, which manages the lower extremities and balance, which compromises me and limits my progress.

I am a box of surprises. I never stop dreaming and smiling. I decided to study psychology since I want a career that allows me to help children and be close to them.
