My name is C. Cesar Ibanez and I graduated from BYU Idaho in 2018. I studied biology because I wanted to have a better understanding of what is going on with my own body. I was born with spinal muscular atrophy, which leaves me in a wheelchair full-time. As I began to have a better grasp of biology I had a better understanding of what was going on within myself. I was able to better explain to others what's wrong, but also show enthusiasm because I understood what was wrong with my own body. As my understanding grew I desire to gain more knowledge, and be able to share with others. Being in a wheelchair put me in a position where I'm constantly explaining what teaching others about my condition, but also help them better understand biology and other subjects. When I took the position of adjunct professor I was afraid that I wouldn't be good at it. However, it has been one of my favorite experience thus far. Students started to call me Professor X (not just because I'm in a wheelchair) because it was starting to be able to read their minds. From experiences, I started to see what they were struggling with, and was able to better help them. I've come to know that ignorance isn't bliss when you genuinely want to understand and know something.
