How different generations living with SMA can teach one another

Meet Regina and Al. Their friendship and respect for one another all started at a fundraiser before a Phillies baseball game in 2019. “I watched Regina give a beautiful speech at the event about her recently diagnosed son, Shane,” recalled Al. “I thought to myself, ‘My friends at Cure SMA need to meet this amazing mom and get her involved.’”

      I met the author of this article at a conference about a year and a half ago, and she does a great job talking about the importance of getting involved as a student https://smanewstoday.com/2018/09/01/school-with-sma-sponsored-post/?amp. Angie writes about her high school experiences here, but I believe her points here apply to college life as well.

      The biggest point she makes here is that if we want to be treated normally in academic or work settings, we have to put ourselves out there and engage with others. I started off my high school days on a great note by talking with people around me, both students in my class and upperclassmen. I also joined clubs and became active from day one. Sure there were awkward times as well as good ones, but my school experiences were always greatly enhanced by participating in student life. No matter what stage of life you’re in, getting involved in something and finding that community goes a long way.
