At age 24 I decided to tell my story. Writing this autobiography gave me the opportunity to pay tribute to my family members who are passionate about life and have instilled this passion in me. My parents' extraordinary support, encouragment, and pure love were my foundation as I navigated life, overcame obstacles, and achieved successes as a young woman with cerebral palsy. I have to pay full tribute to my mother, who died in August 2010. From her I learned to listen to my own voice as a guide to making life choices. She taught me to always expect the best from myself.
My hope is that this book will provide insight into the extraordinary possibilities that those who live with disabilities have. I also hope that those without disabilities - rather than focusing on our differences - will come to understand what we all have in common. This book is for my mom, with love.

Win Is Redefining the Way People View Disability
"I, Win," is an incredible book by an incredible person. Win Kelly Charles is a bestselling author, fashionista, and journalist. She has recorded over 1,000 episodes of her long running podcast, “Ask Win,” which has a wide reaching fan base of over 10,000 subscribers. Win is also a talented artist and her work has appeared in the hands of celebrities. Many people in today’s world would consider Win to be an “influencer.” One other interesting thing about Win? She also has Cerebral Palsy. I list this aspect of Win’s life last because, as she shows in this book, she is not defined by her disability. Instead, she is redefining how the world views Cerebral Palsy and disability in general. In this book, Win recounts her childhood in the beautiful Aspen. She describes the joy of seeing her art in the hands of celebrities as well as the pain of losing her mother. She also shares her triumphs of climbing a mountain and carrying the Olympic torch! I don’t want to say too much about this incredible little book because I want to encourage you to go read it for yourself. Win’s message in this book is clear; People with disabilities can do the same thing anyone else can do, we just might have to do it a little differently. The narrator's voice is clear and easy to understand. She does an excellent job narrating the text. For ages, people have told stories about people with disabilities. I’m so happy see authors like Win and her friend, Danielle, who are using their own voices to share their own stories. I strongly recommend this book for fans of nonfiction and memoir.
