Don’t be afraid of being authentically you!!!
My name is Nina and I’m a Spanish 30-year-old woman born with a mild congenital Cereblar Palsy. Although CP has never stopped me from doing everything I wanted, it took me 28 years to fully accept my disability and my account has helped me immensely. I finally feel free to be authentically me without being afraid of not being perfect or hiding my disability. Through my account @authentically_nina I try to show my authentic self, my day-to-day with CP talking about my struggles but also about everything I can do. Maybe not the same way as others, but in my way. I encourage people to be authentic and try to break societal stigmas around CP or disabilities. I’m trying to create awareness and give visibility to something that is not as visible in my country, a society where there is still a lot of hiding and stigmas and a lot of work to do in terms of equality.
