Teen with spina bifida creates web site on adaptive driving

A teen with spina bifida has created a web site to help other teens with disabilities on information about adaptive driving.

Julianna Russell, who is 16 years old, created I Don't Need Easy after she decided to try to help other teens go through the process so it would be easier for them. Her interest began after attending a camp for people with spina bifida, out of a desire to help others feel less alone going through disability-related experiences.

Russell said she hopes to get contact information and calendars for local organizations for the disabled. But she's also trying to get young people with disabilities to post their stories to the site, making it like "a Facebook for the physically handi-cap," she said.

"I'm trying to get more stories," she said. "I want to get as many as I can."
