Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Tayone Miller

I have overcome many obstacles and each day of my life is challenge but I keep pushing

Hi, my name is Tayone. I am 23 years and I live in Maryland. My life hasn’t been easy... From the day I was born it was a challenge because I was born with Cerebral Palsy. I was not able to walk until I was 6 years of age, and I have had over 18 surgeries and long days of physical and speech therapy. It was hard and extremely tough. Growing up, I received many looks like I was a monster and would hear people call me nasty names. I was bullied several times which led me to have many suicidal thoughts. All of this while being raised in a single parent home. I say this because everything I been through just made me more determined. I have overcome many obstacles and each day of my life is challenge but I keep pushing. My faith in god has helped me with this. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Computer Information System this past December. Always remember never give up, and to all the people with any disability, you are all in my heart and we walk this path together. I am looking for a job or to gain experience in the Information Technology area so if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear from you.
