All About My life living with hydrocephalus

I have archnoid cysts/hydrocephalus, which makes learning anything new and remembering hard for me because I have deficits in short term memory and some other areas. I was adopted from China by my now forever family in February of 2010 when I was 8 years old. I didn't learn to ride without training wheels until 2014 when I was 12 years old because my disability makes me feel very off balance when leaning to do certain things like learning how to ride a bike without training wheels and learning how to swim, which is something I still struggle with because I still feel really uneasy/unsafe in water. I know I will learn how to swim eventually because am a person who doesn't give up easy and is very determined to reach almost all the goals I want to achieve when I either set goals for myself or when other people set goals for me. My favorite quote is "Be Yourself Because Everyone Else Is Taken" because it has a very strong message about being yourself and how you shouldn't worry about what other people think or say to you because you are the only you out there in the world and no one else is exactly like you!
