"It is a special day for me because I was born with cerebral palsy. I started walking at the age of three years old. My parents took me to many doctors when I was young, and one of those doctors told my parents that I would die before the age of 18," she wrote.
She then goes on to explain how despite being told she wouldn't live long, she has not only surpassed eighteen but also achieved many other unbelievable things such as going to university, becoming a public speaker and writing poetry.
