Win Charles Multi Author and Podcaster with Cerebral Palsy on a mission to help others with disabilities

Born with Cerebral Palsy, Win Charles has defied the odds by becoming an author. Her memoir I, Win is an amazing story of how she remembers her life through the years of having a condition called “CP”. Competing in the Kona Iron Man Triathlon, she truly is an inspiration to many. Today she is planning on touring the country and speaking to schools and institutions to raise awareness about cerebral palsy. She is also an advocate of veterans across the world.

After losing her mom Win decided to write “I, Win”, her own biography. It was an exciting process but she was not as happy with the end result as she could have been because the process was rushed. She knew she wanted to do things differently but she didn’t listen to her intuition and speak up so the book would be more polished and professional.

After a horrible experience in the hospital that caused her spine to go dead, Win was told she had to go through excruciating physical therapy and psychological treatment. She did the physical therapy but said “no thank you” to seeing a psychologist. Instead, she channeled her anger into art and then into a book which has opened up all new avenues in her life.

Win is tenacious. If she wants to get something she doesn’t stop until she has figured it out how to get it. She is resilient and persistent. If you want to get what you want, you have to figure it out!

The book: I, Win - 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, encouragement, 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
