Hi! My name is Lauren Martinez. I'm 25 years old and I live in Miami, Florida.

I’ve had CP since I was born. When I was younger I didn’t know how to feel about having CP, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve just learned to embrace it — It will always be a part of me.

A few years ago, I decided to create a podcast called The Celebrity Spot Podcast, where I talk about people with disabilities in the entertainment industry and other industries. I always thought it’s important to show people with disabilities doing incredible things.

I just opened my own online store, and this has been a passion of mine for years. I just want to show that if you put your mind to something, you can do amazing things. I want to be an example for younger girls with CP and inspire them to do whatever they want to do in life.
