You Are Stronger Than You Think
A few years ago, I was chosen as the Athleta locally-sponsored athlete here in Durham, NC.
The first question on my application was: “Tell us your story. Tell us your athletic journey.”
We were supposed to answer in 200 words or less. I got through one paragraph and had already exceeded the word count. So I deleted everything and started over.....
This is me…in 200 words:
Varsity athlete. Soccer. Basketball. Track. MVP. “Most-athletic.”
All-conference/county teams. Fit, active, healthy.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis/Crohn’s disease. 16 years of age.
Innocent and naive about the disease. Still fit and active through college and graduate school.
Not always healthy with flare ups. Club teams. Intramurals.
Bachelors degree in Biology. Sick. Medicine. Doctors.
Masters degree in Neuroscience. Job. Friends. Soccer. Yoga. Love. Wedding.
