I'm Smart and Beautiful As I Am

By lillian chaparro

When I'm walking outside, people think I'm ugly and make fun of me all the time whenever they see me passing by. It really hurts me a lot and it makes me look and feel bad. I hope and pray that I can be accepted when I join Special Olympics. So this way I can show people everywhere that I am capable of my abilities. I may have a disability but that is not going to stop me from living my dreams, and that makes me smart and beautiful inside and out!

About lillian chaparro: I'm from New York and live with my family. I'm looking forward to live my dream to have an active and happy life.
