More About Me
I live a sporty life, and this has not stopped me. There are, however, times I don't see clearly, like when I play football (soccer). I don't see my team mates faces, but I know their positions, and I can kick the ball to them. I have been team captain twice, and I play centerfield. I enjoy surfing, and I have a close friend who is very supportive. My mom has been great through all of this.
