My name is Nadia Zomorodian , I am 27 years old and was diagnosed with 22q at age of 2. I have had heart surgery when I was a week old, the same one that was Jimmy Kimmel's son had. I have also had pallet surgery , sinus surgery and ear tubes cleaned out. I was told when I was two that I would not be able to do anything like: graduate from any schools, drive, work and make friends. I am proud to say I graduated from high school with a regular diploma along with an associates degree in photography from Daytona State College. I started driving at age 18 and still use my GPS, because with out it I would get lost . I have two jobs. I work at Payless part time and I do the register. Math is my worst subject and if the register ever went down, then I would be in trouble. I never passed math in school, but I had another computer class that substituted my math, so I was able to get my associates degree. I have my own photography business and I recently started working for Daytona International Speedway as a photographer when ever we have races going on.
