Hello, my name is Damaris Cruz. I’m 16 years old. I have a disability that is called a learning disability. Having my disability is like: I have difficulty learning stuff that fast, and when I learn something new I forget it in like 10 minutes.
My favorite color is pink. That’s my most favorite color in the whole world.
I have three brothers that are annoying but I love them. I live with my family and my dog; I live in my own room. It’s pink of course! I have a poster of Taylor Lautner and a poster of Austin Mahone.
I joined a group last year that’s called Youth Own; we call it sometimes the YO! group. It’s shorter. The YO! group is like my family. We do a lot of activities and it’s really fun. We go to protest in every city so we could get our disability rights. Sometimes a protest is what it takes. It’s fun to go protesting in some places like Albany, and Washington DC! Right now I am working at RCIL in the Summer Youth Employment Program. I work with 4 co-workers that are so cool to work with. We start working at 12:00 to 5:00 and we design. It’s fun hanging out with YO! They make me laugh a lot!
