Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Rebekah Jensen obviously, and I have autism. I have been a Special Olympics athlete for 9 years now and have won 87 medals.
I thought that I was this "odd" and "quirky" learning-disabled kid until I turned 16. That was when I went crazy! I was hallucinating, I was deluded and agitated. I was very messed up in my head. I take pills now that really help.
When I was 13, my parents gave me a book titled, "We Seven". it was a book written by the mercury 7 astronauts including Gus Grissom. I got HOOKED on the mercury 7!!! I still am!
I was born in 1982 in the state of Washington, and I still live here! I found Jesus when I was 6 years old and since then, I am a new person.
This August, we are going to Washington,D.C. I hope to visit Gus Grissom's resting place!
Gus Grissom is my hero! I never once met him, but I wish I could have!

UPDATE: 2 weeks ago, I finally went to Gus Grissom's resting place! YES!!!! I still could not believe I went there! Now, all I need to do is schedule trip to the Kennedy Space Center.

Update 2: I now have 88 medals!!

Update 3: I now have 100 medals

update 4: I went to pad 34 where my hero was killed
