Don’t Diss My Abilities: Michelle's Story
As a child and teenager, Michelle endured a series of events that was nothing short of soul
crushing. She faced sexual abuse as a child and kept it a secret over the years. At the age of
sixteen she acquired a brain disease that rendered her blind. Her so-called friends bullied her at
school. She fell into a deep depression and turned to drugs, alcohol and self-harm to numb her
pain but nothing seemed to help. She felt her only option was suicide. Thankfully a miraculous
turn of events saved her life and now this remarkable young woman faces all her adversity with
such positive energy that it’s become infectious and humbling to all that know and love her.
