  • I’ll throw my hat in the ring, even though I have no plans on coming that way soon (but my travel plans change all the time!) —

    I’d love to have a picture how I stand up for myself – I’ve had some prejudice against being an engineer and a woman (there were only 6% of us in the school) and I also faced and overcame sexual discrimination in college (was told I wouldn’t graduate b/c my project wasn’t technical enough, but my male partner was not told this)… I believe we all have to be our own advocate!

    I am strong because I was born with Congenital Hypo thyriodism. It is a condition where you are born without a thyroid. With this condition you have to take pills every night, get bloods draws every six months (sometimes before that) and we have tot make sure my levels are normal. If not, i shows signs like: getting hot and cold fast, my hair shedding, and abnormally fast weight gain. A couple years ago, my levels were not normal. They were way high. That resulted a very hard year for me. I was in a how were i had to wear big, bulky pajamas and i was on stage constantly. And if you looked close, you could see me shaking and sweating i was so hot. Also i gained a lot of weight. And i haven’t been able to work it off. There was a lot period of time that i was afraid to wash my hair (of corse i still did) because i didn’t want to see how much hair came off of my head my i brushed my fingers through it. But i have learned to look on the bright side. I have learned things like calling in my own prescription. I know medical terms that not many people my age know! I have learned to take responsibility for remembering my pills and making sure if i don’t take it at night i take it the next morning. Also there are a group of diseases like i can’t get thyroid cancer. I have to be strong becuase its not easy having to change levels and pills constantly.
