Lucky Number 24!

Yesterday at Band Camp, we learned our drill, (which is where you go on the feild.) My number is 24! That is a lucky number for me because thats my mom's favorite number and the day of Miss Cranberry County!! I am a little nervous because so far all my drill dots are right in front!! Ahhh!!! I am excited but I sure have a lot of work to do!! I am hoping that 24 will give me some good luck! (:

Practice Makes Perfect.

"Practice is everything. This is often misquoted as Practice makes perfect."

Everyday I practice my Colorguard Flag work for at least 20mins. When I first learned the flag work, it was not very pretty. But because I never give up and strive to make myself better in everything I do, my flag work is now really great!! Practice really is the best of all instructors.

“Practice as if you are the worst, perform as if you are the best.”

Welcome! (:

Hello everyone!
For those who don't know, my name is Amy de Silva. I am 14 years old and have Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease. CMT, affects every 1 in 2500 people of every age and walk of life. CMT affects an estimated 2.6 million people. CMT, is also the most commonly inherited neurological disorder.

So why am I here? I want to spread awareness of CMT and let everyone (but especially the youth) know that its okay to be different. I live by this quote: "If you are lucky enough to be different from everyone else, don't change." Taylor Swift came out with this quote a couple of years ago, and ever since, I have embraced being different. I hope you will too. (:
