All About Me

By: Amber Bettencourt


I'm Amber, I live with my parents, grandmother, a sister named Abby and my two brothers named Justin and Jonathan. I'm Portuguese, I've moved here in Mississauga when I was 4 years old. At the age of 5 during my kindergarten year I found out that I was diagnosed with Cerebral palsy. I started wearing AFOs on both of my feet to help me walk. At the age of 12, I had to go for my first surgery on July 25 2012 which was on my parents anniversary, so they had to spend their anniversary in hospital. But, I guess the best part about going though surgery; was wearing these pajamas that were soft as a cloud, but most importantly was having my family there supporting me along the way. The ER room what pretty big, I say my feet on this really big screen which was cool. They say I wouldn't remember a thing after the surgery, but I do. Anyways I'm 14 years old now WOO!!!! and I go to Philip Pocock high school, and this year is going pretty well so far.


When I was 10 or 11 years old I used to play piano for 2 to 3 years. It was very fun. I love playing different kind of sports like; soccer, hockey, basketball, baseball, volleyball, and football. I love playing sports with my family, it makes the game more fun. As you can see my background for this flyer is books because I love reading novels. I've read 'The Messenger of Fear', 'One More step', 'The Daughter of Deep Silence', 'Cruel Beauty', and lot of other books. I like things that look and feel mysterous, but I hate watching horror movies.
