About-Me

About-Me



I, Tommy Serna was born on November of 1996. I'm currently 23 years of age (4/4/2020*) & I was born with a rare disease/condition called, 
"osteogenesis imperfecta." 




Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Oi for short / aka Brittle Bones) 


Affects my whole body - bones, joints, muscles. There is severity [levels] of my condition, I have type 3. My bones are fragile n weak compared to the average being - I must be aware of what I'm doing at all times to prevent injuries. My life is tough, but that is no excuse for not living my best life.
I grew up not the happiest camper on the planet, I had tons of fractures, tons of surgeries and tons of hospital visits as a kid, my childhood wasn't the best but I never let myself down or be ashamed of myself. My parents pushed me to become stronger and I did. 
When I reach teenage years, my fractures has reduced a lot, and I began to improve myself such as working out and eating right (living the healthy lifestyle) because I wanted to stop breaking, I want to walk, I want to able to carry heavy things and show people I am capable of doing things. People tend to think otherwise since I'm in a wheelchair. That hasn't stopped me from doing what most people think I cannot do.
I started my Fitness Journey around 2016/2017, since then, I have made huge, I mean huge self-improvements. I've improved my strength, overall body strength; I've fallen before & did not fracture. That's a sign of improvement. I'm now training to walk, I'm doing things that I could not do before. People are looking up to me, complimenting me, asking for advice n help, and people say I'm a huge motivation for 'em. I'm glad that I can motivate people who are disabled or not because anyone can achieve anything if you put your mind into it.


I hope y'all can follow and tag along with me on my journey.
