The Diva, The Disability, and The Unforeseen Drinking Game: A Story of Self-Acceptance (Paperback)
Glorianne Rivera-Casanova also known as "Glow," takes you on a journey through her SMA diagnosis to design school. Her book encompasses years of self-reflection and realizations. She paints her story of acceptance through a fictitious, idealistic entity of whom she's named the Walking Diva. Growing up, the Walking Diva was everything Glow thought she should have been but couldn't be because of her physical disability. (Oh, yeah, you can't see her, but she's wheelchair-bound. I'm sure she put a picture somewhere in here.) The Walking Diva was a bitch, but she was Glow's friend. They had a love-hate relationship that went on for years, but at some point Glow realized she was better off without her.
