Little and Blessed

My name is Rocio de Jesus. From the Dominican Republic. I'm 25 years old. At 2 years old I was diagnosed with a Kozlowski-type spondylometaphysial dysplasia, characterized by short trunk dwarfism. At school I used to be bullied and that caused me sadness. My condition has not prevented me from reaching my dreams. Now I am a school psychologist, I work as a counselor in a school, and tell the kids how to stop bullying. Last year I received a master in neuropsychology applied to education. When I was younger I did not like to see people with the same condition, maybe because I still had not accepted myself. God has come into my life and allowed me to love the way I am and be grateful for everything. I do not like wasting time, so a few days ago I decided to create a fan page to gather people with dwarfism in my country (@personaspequenasrd), I want to create a community so we can be an inspiration for others. Recently I created a blog to share my experiences as a little person (https://pequenaybendecida.home.blog/) I am also one of the coordinators of the adolescent ministry of my parish, I firmly believe that God has a purpose for each one of us, and when we respond to it we find true happiness.
