Important milestones, I was 17 so being reacclimated in my school was huge. I was scared out of my mind too because I was a senior in high school, I was a cheerleader, I just was very involved, and I was taken out of that my senior year for two-and-a-half months. And I went back after Christmas break, and when I went back, I was totally different, and I realized how difficult that was. But an important milestone was I approached my cheerleading coach, and said, “can I go back to cheerleading and just do the arm motions?” and she said “yes.” So, I put my uniform on, and my cheerleading friends and I got on a short little bus with a lift, and we went to all the basketball games. And that made me realize at that moment, that milestone, that I could do anything I wanted to do.
