Hope of my life and game

I am waiting to move to my new home. It’s hard to move when you are disabled. But, I have the wheelchair basketball team, the NRH Punishers, as a positive constant. From 2018 through 2020, I went through a tough time when my cousin died. She was always there for people and gave to the poor. I want to give back, like her, in West Africa. I pray that when I win the lottery I will start an organization to give back.

I hate when people put me down because of my disability, but it makes me stronger. I don’t let my disability tear me down. I’ve been mistreated by my family. My mother would take my wheelchair and put it outside. My wheelchair was stolen twice because of that. I’ve been punched, slapped, and robbed by people because of my disability.
