Hi my name is James Freeman and I have cerebral palsy.
Growing up, I always knew I was different. I always knew that in some way I might have to work harder than others.
No one teaches you how to be disabled, it’s one of those things you just have to figure out on your own. That can be hard for anyone.
However, in my opinion, you have to make the best of things because everyone is dealing with something.
I’ve worked hard for my life and I’ve achieved a lot.
I have an incredible family, the best friends and I’m pretty successful in a lot of things.
Unlike so many, getting older excites me because it’s another year I get to experience the world, so that in the future I can be that kick-ass granddad with all the amazing stories.
