Hi everyone, my name is Alexa and I am social media manager and influencer to share awareness about CP & women’s empowerment! I started to share more of my cerebral palsy story last year, and the community that I’ve started to grow has been such a motivation for myself. The stories I get to hear from others really show me that we are not alone. I’m so glad I get to use my platform to help others!
Growing up with cerebral palsy has impacted my life in so many ways. Through the negatives, I also have found many positives to my CP, because I have learned so much about resilience and consistency.
When I was younger, I always knew that I was different from the other kids because of the way I walked. I have Hemiplegia, and it affects the right side of my body. My case of CP is fairly mild, as I have mobility throughout my body. My right leg is the most affected. I’m unable to wiggle my toes, my foot has limited mobility, and my right side is overall weaker than my left.
