I don’t remember life before Heads Together Camp. For me there never was a life before camp. My peers have no idea of the world of Heads Together and I am grateful that my family and me have had these times together to be part of this amazing world. If I hadn’t I would be just like everyone else – ignorant and unaware of a whole new life.
Without camp I would be like all other teenage girls arrogant and selfish but I have been to camp ever since I was three years old and I have learned so much. I have learned that people with disabilities can be so strong, so courageous and so determined. I know now that people at camp are not just people that I tolerate or be kind to because I feel sorry for them but they are real people that I value as friends forever.
