Jill asked: Have your classmates been accepting of your health issues.
Answer: I expressed before I started school on how incredibly nervous I was with having my peers accept me. I have been in awe with the way they have accepted me. Nobody ask's me questions, on why I have a single room there response is "woah your so lucky you have a single room." It doesn't cross their minds that I may have a single room because of health reasons, in matter of fact I'm usually the one bringing it up. I don't try to hide who I am but it's nice not being known as the girl who had a nurse, my new peers don't know my past. Thanks Jill for the question!
Mary asked: I'm a freshman in college also and i was wondering have you been able to maintain good relationships with you best friends back how do they keep you grounded? does being able to lean back on them make you feel like you can push forward in the world?
Answer: Hi Mary, hope your freshman year in college is going well! I have been able to maintain a good relationship with my good friends from home, although it is tough. While were miles apart and want to stay close together, we have obstacles. I have always been the girl who wants to experience the world and that's what I'm doing at college. But having my friends at home, remind me of who I am and where I come from and I will never lose sight of that. My friends want nothing but the best for me so they definitely inspire me and help me push forward in the world.
Thank you Jill and Mary for your questions and I hope I answered them fully.
