Hi everyone, my name is Sofia. I live in Chicago, Illinois and I am currently a freshman in high school. My life can sometimes be challenging due to an illness. I am hyper flexible and most likely have type III Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. This means that I have a group of mutated genes. Everyday I have pain in all of my joints. This makes my life a little different then the average teenager. I can't participate in gym or participate in sports. But hey, everyones life is challenging in their own way. My family puts up with a lot of my problems and i am so thankful for them. I have a little sister, Grace, who is 9 years old.
My parents help me though everything. They told me that they aren't going to stop until we figure out my illness. They help me through so many difficult situations and I am so thankful for them. They give me so much great advice and I am thankful for their time and attention when I need it. I am also thankful for how they raised me and teaching me how to be a respectful and polite young lady.
Maddie's family has been there for me as long as I've known Maddie. They are so relevant in my life and they are truly an inspiration to me. They are such selfless and caring people who always put others before themselves. They are amazing and beautiful people who I am honored to have in my life.
Well I hope you will enjoy my blog, there is more to come :)
