  Whitney's story

I am just your average black girl living and thriving with a disability. So many times through out life I have been asked how I have stayed and continue to stay positive through the challenges I've faced and do face living with Spina Bifida and many personal tragedies, and the answer is simple. I am convinced that my life is worth living after all of the times I tried to lose it and God blocked it. After all of the times I threw in the towel and it just wouldn't stay in the trash I decided to be done with negativity.  Sure negativity may try to overwhelm us but we do not have to let it.It's not a cliche. It's a strategy. God is a strategic creator. We should be too.
