When I was nine years old, we discovered a way for me to communicate. I was unable to express any of my needs or wishes before that time. Because I am now able to communicate, my life has changed. I have been able to not only write, but paint, compose music for piano and keyboard, and tell others of my wishes and dreams for my life. Without a voice others choose for you, and they often assume you lack intellect. I was so sad about my life before I could express myself. Now everything has changed because I have a voice.
