At a young age, Fareeda started displaying symptoms that concerned her mother. After seeing various doctors and going through many tests, Fareeda was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a disorder of movement, muscle tone, or posture that is caused by damage that occurs to the immature or developing brain. Some of the challenges Fareeda faces each and every day include impaired movement associated with abnormal reflexes, floppiness or rigidity of the limbs and trunk, abnormal posture, involuntary movements, unsteady walking, or some combination of all of them. Fareeda is completely dependent on an electric powered wheelchair for mobility.
Despite her unfortunate set of circumstances, Fareeda remains a happy girl. She enjoys school and homework, but reading books is her favorite. She really likes reading Junie B. Jones and The Kid in the Red Jacket. Described as a smart girl, Fareeda loves to play piano at school where she also enjoys drawing and coloring. Fareeda really enjoys pink, purple, and sparkly clothes and hopes one day to shop in Manhattan to make her feel like the princess she aspires to be.
