Blessed through clogging

Spina Bifida (SB)

Brittney Martin

My family has always encouraged me to not let my disability stop me.

My name is Brittney, and I'm 22. I was born with spina bifida, and before I was born, doctors said I would be paralyzed from the neck down and unable to move, talk and communicate. Today, I'm only paralyzed from the knees down, and independent with a wheelchair. My family has always encouraged me to not let my disability stop me, and I've been clog dancing (like tap) since I was six. My grandma is the director of our group, and I can't thank her enough for being willing to help me adapt clogging and providing me with the opportunities dancing has brought my way. I'm preparing to preform in a national clogging showcase over Thanksgiving for my third time, and I'm so thankful for how I've been blessed through clogging! You really can do anything if you put your mind to it and are surrounded with support.
