On the final day of National Scoliosis Awareness Month, I think back to junior high school, when I started wearing a back brace 23 out of 24 hours a day.
During these socially formative years, I wore this horrible plastic hard shell meant to prevent my scoliosis from getting worse, but instead, it stunted my dreams of fashion and becoming the runway model I just knew I was meant to be! Oh the agony….but all was not lost, I’ve never lost the desire to be connected to fashion and now I revel in the magical feeling of fashion that has helped me adapt after life threw me a curve, literally.
Though scoliosis has changed my path in the way I originally thought life would go, it has led to my mission of finding my voice to champion scoliosis, disability and the absolute need for Fashionable Adaptive clothing and shoe awareness!
Stay aware, share and spread the word about the things you’ve learned following my posts about my scoliosis journey.
