It's Okay to Be Unique and to Love Who You Are

I was diagnosed with Turner syndrome when I was born. In my life, I have had to deal with so much. In middle school and high school, it was hard for me socially because I felt like an outsider, and I felt alone.

Now I’m a sophomore at Tarleton State University majoring in education. I am in Phi Mu Fraternity. I joined Phi Mu because I knew the girls would love me, even though I have Turner syndrome. I also joined because Phi Mu's philanthropy is Children's Miracle Network Hospital. We also work with Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth Texas. I have a long history with Cook Children's, in that I would go there for my appointments for Turner syndrome. I knew when I joined Phi Mu, I could give back to Cook's for what they have done for me.

Last fall, I had the opportunity to share the story of my connection with Cook Children’s Hospital and Turner syndrome with potential new fraternity members on philanthropy night during formal recruitment.

Even though I have Turner syndrome, I don't let it get it me down. I embrace it, and I talk about it with people to inspire them to keep going and never give up, and to show them that it’s okay to be unique, and to love who you are.
