Wow, I’ve never had someone believe so much in the capacity of my brain and my possibilities than my current biology professor.

When meeting with her for a routine matter (figuring out how to better equip myself for exams), she made comments like, “I’ve never had to tell any student this before, but for you, you have to memorize.” Apparently, that’s the part that comes easily to people as opposed to grasping the bigger picture and making connections. She said, “if somehow we could harness your brain and what it does… Your brain is unique”.

I went on to tell her a basic version of my struggles with Cerebral Palsy and how I wasn’t set to do anything in life.

She was just short of astonished, saying she never would have guessed.
She really, truly believes in me, and tells me this without any sort of prompting on my end.
