Williams Syndrome is a genetic disorder impacting roughly 1 in 20,000 births. It impacts certain physical and learning abilities. These differences can, unfortunately, lead to teasing, bullying, and just being made to feel out of place.
One of the positive things about Williams Syndrome on the other hand is that I was born with a musical gift! Music has impacted my life in a profound way, allowing me to take pride in those things I CAN do, instead of focusing on the things that I cannot. It also enhances my ability to be my true self, and to love who I have become.
I feel empowered by MUSIC and the many other STRENGTHS that Williams Syndrome has given me!
