Amelia has type 3 OI and was kind enough to send us her words of determination:
My name is Amelia and I have type 3 OI. I have had hundreds of fractures in my life and many of surgeries. When I was in grade 7, I had a brain tumor the size of a hardball removed from my head. Just when I thought it was gone for good, it came back again the summer after grade nine. Since then I have had cancer treatments to make sure it won't come back.
These events have had a big effect on me, but in no way have slowed me down in reaching my goals. After I graduate, I'm going to go to University to become an Astronomer. One day, I'm going to discover something great, and nothing is going to stop me.
Thank you Amelia
