Having Epilepsy is an everyday challenge; since I can have a seizure attack anytime and anywhere – it could be absence seizure or tonic-clonic seizure. It could occur during lectures or while I am just walking or even just having lunch with my classmates. Plus it could happen more than once in a day and could last for a few seconds or even up to thirty minutes.
I am thankful Trinity College made me feel welcomed and valued – where I can have extra time for my assignments, additional time for the exams, an exam venue with fewer students and I am permitted to defer my placements.
Although my illness is unpredictable and uncontrollable, I am not letting it control me. To those who have a disability, yet still determined, I salute you!
