Drewy Curious

Q1) Tell us a little about yourself!

My name is Drewy NovaClara Curious. My work is based in San Diego, California. I like being independent, studying psychology and medicine, and learning new languages!  

Q2) Tell us about what you do, and why you do it

I’m Model/actor and disability advocate. I educate on topics such as Deafness, Autism, Elhers Danlos syndrome, Dysautonomia, living in today’s world as a full time wheelchair user and more. I do what I do because I want to help abled people understand differences better and the disability community to see something they can relate to. There isn’t enough accurate representation in media and Hollywood of disabled individuals. I want to try and change that. 

Q3) What makes you feel courageous?

My followers give me courage. When I’m afraid at the hospital or if I don’t understand something spoonie-related, I know I can just ask my followers and they’ll not only help me, but each other as well. It’s really amazing. 

Q4) What is one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?

I would tell my 16 year old self to buckle up because she’s in for one hell of a ride. I’d tell her that she’s not crazy and her symptoms are real. I’d tell her to be more demanding about seeking medical care. I’d tell her it’s going to be okay even if it doesn’t seem like it in the moment.

Q5) What is one piece of advice you can give a fellow lady who might be lacking courage?

Advice I have for fellow spoonies in need of courage is to remember you’re not alone. We’re not alone. We have a huge community of people here to support us and we can support them. Sometimes our friends and even our family may have trouble understanding what it’s like to be chronically ill. That can be really hard. But that’s why we’re all here supporting each other. So no one is alone.
