Scoliosis & Spina Bifida Fighter

Hello! I am Amaia Montero León (@unmilagroparaamaia). I’m 11 years old and I was born with Spina Bifida and hydrocephalus. I have a very severe neuromuscular scoliosis (approximately 80 degrees), which is confines my lungs and heart. I was immobilized for more than a year, with a plaster cast all over my body. Due to my condition, I could not go to school and lead a normal life, however I am a very happy and positive girl. I love music, singing and going to the beach or swimming pool. My parents decided to create an Instagram account to share my story and let many people know how a girl with Spina Bifida and Scoliosis lives every day.    **If you want to know more about me, follow me on Instagram @unmilagroparaamaia
