In CHARGE of My Life
Authors: Delila Vasquez, Student
Keywords: CHARGE Syndrome, family issues, communication, DeafBlind community
I am Delila Vasquez, a student in Dallas, TX. I was born with CHARGE syndrome. I wrote a book, In CHARGE of My Life, about growing up being DeafBlind. I want others who are DeafBlind to know they are not alone and families to know about my struggles so they can be more understanding of what their children go through. Families do not have to be stressed. They can learn how their child communicates best, makes friends in the DeafBlind community, and shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help. Not knowing how to help or understand their kids can be scary. I made this book to let them know to be positive and keep learning how they can achieve their goals. I want others to know it is okay to have feelings, and it is okay to tell someone or ask for help.
