I proved them wrong

By Carlee and Caron

Hi my name is Carlee. I was told at a early age that I would never be able ride a bike or be social and outgoing, turns out I proved them wrong. I am extremely social and known as the social butterfly by my coaches. I have played soccer, softball,basketball, bowled, swam ran track, along with many other sports. I went to the Summer National games in 2010 for Special Olympics Arizona. Along with my teammates, I competed in soccer and brought home the Bronze Medal. Volleyball is another one of my passions. I have been to the USA National Volleyball tournament for the last three years with Special Olympics Arizona and twice was named a All Star team player! I am a part of the Special Olympics Arizona unified volleyball team and going to Summer Games 2014 taking place in NJ. Fun fact my younger sister Calee is my partner and has been for the last 2 years. My older brother Chase has also been my partner. If I had listened to the doctors and never tried I would have never become the person I am today. Thank you Special Olympics Arizona for allowing me to be me.

About Carlee and Caron : I am 20 years old and the Owner,Creator and Head Bubble Maker for my company Lil Miss Bubbles, a soap boutique where I personally handcraft an amazing line of soaps and body products designed just for kids (or big kids at heart)! I like to make others smile and have a zest for all things fun.
