Recently while looking for some book reviewers I met Morgan Amos on Instagram. Morgan is a very inspiring personality full of positivity. Born with Cerebral Palsy she is no less achiever than anyone else. I requested her to share her story on my blog to motivate and uplift other women and she readily agreed. Read her heart-touching story in her own words.
How My Faith Has Helped Me To Accept My Disability
Hebrews 11:6 is my favorite scripture in the bible. It talks about the importance of having faith in Jesus and yourself. My faith and relationship with Jesus are vital to me. As a person with a disability, I’ve had to work hard to prove to myself and others that I am capable of achieving what I want out of life. My faith and my family’s support has given me the strength and courage to pursue my dreams.
My journey has been an interesting one. I was born with Cerebral Palsy, and as a result, my lower extremities are affected. I use a wheelchair to maneuver around, but I am also able to use a walker. Given my physical limitations, I made it a point to enhance other areas of my life so that people wouldn’t focus on what I couldn’t do but rather what I could.
Obtaining an education was instilled in me from an early age, so I knew that this was something I could devote my time to and flourish rather than focusing entirely on how my disability was limiting me. I gave it everything I had when it came to school. Straight As in grammar school and I graduated Co-Salutatorian in high school. College was no different. I graduated with my bachelor’s and masters in journalism.
From there, I began a freelance writing career, and I have been doing this for approximately nine years now. I’ve worked for online magazines, published a book, ghostwrote, conducted book reviews, and did some editing. I’ve appreciated every opportunity I have had. My goal is to continue to do the work that I love while also helping those who feel they have a story to tell be able to tell it. This is why I started Morgan Lee Reviews.
Morgan Lee Reviews is a site dedicated to timely and quality book reviews, interviews, and ghostwriting services. By creating my website and showcasing the work that I do, I hope to help people with the services I provide. I welcome all questions and comments. I didn’t have that coming up in this business. I had to figure things out as I went along, and if I can give back by helping someone interested in the ins and outs of writing, and doesn’t know where to start, I am willing to do that.
When I am not working, I like to spend time with my family and read as many books as possible, one of which includes the YouVersion Bible app. I am into fiction and nonfiction books and am a sucker for paperbacks. I have a couple of books in the works that I am personally working on and have taken an interest in cooking and trying new foods. I am also into action and thriller and suspenseful movies.
I try to enjoy life as best I can, and I am thankful for my family, friends, and opportunities like this, where I can let others into my world know a little more about me and the work that I do. So, I want to give a huge thank you to Deeksha Tripathi for this wonderful opportunity to share my story with you all.
