The competition was to see who could build the tallest standing straw tower. The class was divided into groups. There were two members in each group that were assigned a disability. We weren't supposed to tell the others what our disability was. I was technically blind. I had to shut my eyes the entire time my group built our straw tower. It was really frustrating for me because I felt useless in my group. I tried raising my voice to get the other kids attention but they wouldn't listen to me. There was a group leader who took control and I was not that person. My disability completely limited my chance at leadership and I was not able to contribute to the group at all. Despite my frustration, the activity was still a lot of fun. I'm sure it was also really funny to watch me try to contribute. Unfortunately our group did not win but I was listening to everyone throw around really interesting and creative ideas for our straw tower.
