Initially, I did not want to attend Jackson State University. I felt like I needed something different. But I was forced to go on a JSU tour that I absolutely did not want to do. Once I got here, I instantly felt like this was the place for me. I loved the campus and the people. I knew JSU was for me.
But it has been challenging. I often have to sit down and take breaks. I can’t do everything my friends do. Still, I’ve learned so much from this diagnosis. I really believe in self-care now.”
