Now I love Special Olympics

By danielle blue

I have a mental illness called schizoaffective, which affects the way I think and act. I think things that aren't true sometimes and I take meds for it. I got involved in Special Olympics in 1999. My first event was soccer. I remember loving it. I used to do all the sports, now I do track and field and bowling. Those are my favorite sports. I love how Special Olympics allowed me to do sports. I wanted to try Special Olympics too but was unsure of how to become involved. Now I love Special Olympics. If you have a mental disability don't be afraid to go out there and do sports. It's good for the soul and spirit.

About danielle blue: I love Special Olympics. I love to travel, read, sing, and I love to walk.
