I am a senior at the University of South Florida. I will be starting graduate school here at USF this fall. I will be working on my Master's Degree in Political Science. I was diagnosed with Crohn's and Colitis in June of 2003. I have lived with Crohn's and Colitis for 11 years and I have been through surgeries, multiple flare-ups, and a slew of different medications. I am very proud of my success in overcoming my illness and would LOVE to meet other people at USF who are also fighting the obstacles Crohn's and Colitis can create.
