I wish I could say that I'm into STEM and that you could expect me to be enrolled in MIT and find the cure to cancer, but there's no denying that I SUCK at anything numbers. Trust me, I've tried everything - I must've watched at least 100 Khan Academy videos, but honestly, I don't see the point. I guess I'm just one of those people that values quality over quantity. Life isn't just valued by the number of days you lived or the amount of money you made...it is about the memories you make and leave behind. Just like life, scoliosis is not just numbers - it’s the hours spent wearing a brace, the days of recovery from surgery, and the lessons learned from an experience that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
