My name is Christopher, and I live in Arlington VA, which is just outside Washington DC. I was born in Bangkok, Thailand. My Dad was in the Air Force at that time stationed in Laos. Although I was born normal, at 4 months of age I had Meningitis and Encephalitis. This caused brain damage which led to Cerebral Palsy. My family worked very hard with me to put me through school. I’ve lived in Germany, Miami, and Virginia. It wasn’t until we moved to Virginia that I was placed into a non-disabled school. I have normal intelligence and was a trail blazer in my school district. I even played drums from 6th grade through high school in the concert bands. I then attended Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, where I majored in Speech Communications and wanted to go into Public Relations, but ended up in an International law firm in Washington DC as a Research Technology Assistant. I’m there 20 years now.
