“I was diagnosed with RP 35 years ago. One day, someone told me that I was not artistic. I decided to prove them wrong. Having been raised with a mindset that “if you try you CAN,” I decided to not let RP win. I was active through the Parent Information Center of Delaware with a disABILITY Awareness program that reinforced the “CAN” message.
I graduated from Douglass College with a degree in Spanish Education and was employed in corporate America until 2017.”
