Music speaks when words fail
Music literally saves my life and mind everyday. My name is Jesse Probibiliteez and i’m addicted to music. Growing up with a physical disability(Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita) was very tough and often times felt out of place, like I didn’t belong. Because I was born disabled, the education system placed me in a School for Specific Purposes which taught me nothing exept how to color within the lines at 2nd grade. Luckily for me, my mother would teach me numbers and words at home, read to me, and got me used to doing arithmetic. When I would attend school, I would get bored and start practicing my numbers and words because all they had me do was color. My young brain was very eager to learn. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely appreciate art on so many levels but my young mind craved knowledge. After 2 weeks of me writing simple math and basic words instead of coloring got the attention of my teacher and from that moment the education system realized that they had to place me in mainstream education. Because my mother took the time to teach me numbers and words, it saved me from becoming stuck in a School for Specific Purposes.
