My name is Darrell Cody Lillard and I have a pretty interesting life. I like to read, play basketball and I am good at math. I was born with disabilities which make me unique. The disabilities I have are called Club Feet and Arthrogryposis. Those are my visible differences. It is hard to do some things and live a normal life.
My disabilities really can affect my life experience. Arthrogryposis means I cannot bend my legs as easily, and Club Feet means my feet are curved. Walking really isn’t easy for me, but I make it work. Also, I play baseball with these conditions and it is hard. When I am at school my friends and I play a makeshift baseball game.
Some ways I have learned to flaunt my differences is by staying positive. To stay positive, I remind myself there are people with worse lives than mine so I should be grateful. I had surgeries to help me too. These are the things that make me different.
