Welcome To My Blog
Thanks for dropping by. Currently I’m 21, a university student, and I have Sickle Cell. This is a place for me to voice my thoughts and tell some stories – if you enjoy reading it then amazing! For now, this blog will just revolve around my feelings towards Sickle Cell and how it has impacted me – who knows whether it’ll expand in the future. I’ll attempt to do weekly posts so stay tuned. Happy exploring.
This got me thinking about my condition. As much as it is an inhibitor to studying, social life etc. what opportunities have I been granted because of it, or because of the colour of my skin? I now have two options, do I say I don’t care how I got in, just that I did? Or do I say that I don’t want the offer if it’s not based on my own merit?
I remember talking to my mom about potential careers and all the things I was considering doing being crossed off one by one. Sickle cell does that in a way, restricts and constricts you. As a kid that’s heartbreaking – you’re supposed to see your future as one big possibility where you can do anything as long as you work hard enough. I was always a smart kid, nothing should have been out of my reach and yet it was.
