Back at school, I was just in the begining stages of my blog writing and Facebooking. With Facebook, I discovered something that has become so important to me: Neurofibromotosis. It opened up so many support groups. People just like me. Talking about NF, embracing it, becoming advocates. Something I never had done.
My lovely Food Writing teacher, Irena Chalmers (something of a Rock star to me when it comes to writing), encouraged me to take up an Independant Study, talking about my NF. After some thinking, I decided to dive in and do it.
It makes me laugh a little now, to think of the Dean of (Dean of what? I can't remember) possibly Bachelor Studies, meeting with me to discuss the project, trying to twist my arm to make it into a Learning Strategies Center Propaganda project. Really? Really? Can you even spell Neurofibromotisis, let alone say it, Dean?
Anyway, here you will find my paper. I hope you read, enjoy, and learn more about me, and NF.
