This Radio Show Host Rare Diese

It's no secret that life is hard, I would say that 90% of people are struggling to make it. While the other 10% are not even going to try. While many of us are looking for inspirations and comparing ourselves to famous people, I would like to take a moment to point out someone who has all odds against her and she still continuing to push. . Her name Is Michelle Padilla and this her story.

Can you tell me a little about yourself.

I am currently diagnosed with 22Q. The doctors knew I had it at a younger age but didn't tell me or my parents because they wanted me to succeed.I found out at a later age of my life.  This disease is rare, only 1 in 1,000 people are diagnosed with it.  My mom and I think I got it by accident because she doesn’t have it in her genes We think its in the environment. Unfortunately there is no cure. We are still trying to learn more about it. I remember being younger having a lot of limitations and school was one of those I pursue school even though it took me a lot longer than most.

With your limitations how were you able  to push through

My dad doesn’t believe in the phrase "I can’t" He is constantly pushing me to the next level and always trying to help me. I had support from my friends,and they were the reason I was able to start my radio show. I had a lot of doubts, but my friends were very supportive and the stations managers has helped me as well. 
Can you tell me about your Radio Show?
My show is an awareness show. I am constantly trying to promote causes and chairties looking for help. Live guest are alwas welcomed . I have  had mayor Jim Dear, Ryan Dempster, and Bobby Collins on my show.
Did you have any struggles and how did you overcome?
When I first started my show, I didn’t know how to use all the controls and I was very shy. My dad would listen in and text me to talk more. I also would stutter a lot and would have a hard time. The station manager Steven would constantly tell me how to improve and offer advice to make the show better.
It would appear that you handle criticism quite well?
Yes, I learn just to deal with it because I am actually used to it.  I used to get picked on when I was younger because of my illness, other students would call me names, So I just learn to tune them out. I also had a father who was always trying to help me improve, so that helps a lot.
