Special Olympics changed my self worth

By lisa sipes

I was not a happy person. I was always walking around bowling green ohio with my head down. Special Olympics changed that. When I whent to the World Games I felt better about myself.

About lisa sipes: the program I am in is called woodlane residential inc the special Olympic director said when ever the words special olymics is said around ted and jo sipes and lisa sipes we just beam with a happy smile because I am not hurt so deeply from being bullied when I was growing up.
