Rebekah's Car- Road to Independence

I have a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfect (OI Brittle Bones). When I was younger I would break my bones all the time. They would break so easily that the I would cough or sneeze my ribs would break. Each year, my bones became stronger because of all the medication and rodding surgeries. Thanks to Shriners Children’s Hospital. I have not broken anything since I was in 8th grade. My parents Keith and Cheryl Wyse adopted my twin and me from Taiwan. I was 21 months old when we came to the United States. When I was little doctors told my parents that I would not be able to sit up, walk with crutches, or do anything for myself. Today I am able to do all those and even drive. I am grateful they gave me a second chance at a wonderful life.

Being able to drive to work and drive to school independently is one of my many dreams I wish to achieve. Right now I am trying to finish off my general classes at Northwest Community College. Then I will transfer to Wright State University. My main goal is to receive my Master’s Degree in Social Work. I would like to eventually be able to work at a hospital, an adoption agency, or a grief and loss counseling facility. My father had passed away January 2017 and I want to be there for others and their loved ones in their time of need. 

In order to buy my vehicle, I need to follow all the state requirements. Which is why it cost $20,000.
1) Has to be under 3 years old
2) Has to be under 3,600 miles
3) Has to be bought from a dealership
4) Has to be a certain type of car
A) Dodge Caravan
B) Town and Country
C) Honda
D) Toyota
*If these requirements are not met
then the state will not pay for my
vehicle modification which cost an
additional $30,000.

With your help, I can accomplish my dreams and hopefully be an inspiration to other people.
