This weeks blog post will be about my good friend Allie Nowrocki. We have been good friends for quite a few years now and there are lot of things that I look up to about her. I wanted this weeks blog post to be about her and for you to get to know a little bit about Allie and her disability.

What is the hardest thing you have had to go through with having your disability and how did you get through it?
"I think it was hard getting growth hormone shots from ages 1-14. I also find it challenging that I cannot drive or do things my siblings can.
I get through it by looking at the positive and seeing my strengths. Lastly, my disability has taught me to be tough when dealing with adversity. It has also taught me to appreciate life.
What are your dreams and what do you wish to accomplish?
"My dream is to move to Tennessee one day and to adopt 3-4 children" Allie said

I wanted this blog post to be about one of my best friends because sometimes it can be nice to write about myself and the struggles I go through to help me process everything but it's also really nice for a change to write about someone else. Allie and I met one year on 4th of July at a family friends party. And since then we have been best friends and we are a lot alike and have a lot in common and it's always nice to have someone who can share a lot of the same struggles you go through and where you can encourage each other and talk things out. I've always looked up to Allie and how she can work so many hours and how she graduated from college. When you put your mind to something and believe in yourself and have good friends who can encourage you along the way and brings out the good in you defintley helps.. Let me know if you or anyone you know has a disability I would love to interview them and write a blog post about them!
Everyone has different struggles and different ways that they learn to deal with their disability it's just a matter if you let your disability put a limit on you and your life or if you take your challenges and make the most of it and your life and look at the positives and what you can do.
"If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything"
