Hi everyone,
My name is CPwarrrior18 and I am 17
I have CP and I have just moved to the UK to go to college at York College and I will be doing a creative media course 
I don't have any friends here yet as I have been out of the country for a while
I hope to make some soon  :)
Look forward to chatting with you

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Welcome @CPwarrior18

    That's exciting your studying soon in York! I hope you enjoy your time here in the UK.

    It's lovely to have you here on the boards :) 
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Hello and welcome to The Mix. :)

    York is a beautiful city and your media course sounds most interesting! Naturally, starting will be a bit daunting at first, but you won't be the only new student, so you should have a good opportunity to make friends with another new student, too.

    I'm so glad you joined The Mix. There are some lovely people here.

    Best wishes,
