Neza

Hi there! My name is Neža Naglič from a small country Slovenia, Europe, I am 28 years old and I have cerebral palsy (hemiparesis and speech disorder).

I  was only nine months old when my family found out I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. I have four brothers and one sister.

One challenge I experienced was meeting with new people, because some of them laughed at me at beginning.

My proudest achievement is probably my diploma at the normal college and signing up for dance classes. I also enjoy makeup and being a model is my wish. I also learnt some languages like English, Spanish, a little German, a little French, a little Croatian, and a little Italian.

One thing I would tell people about CP is that I wish people would treat people like us better and respect us like we respect them.
