  • Quinn Fucile
  • Who is Quinn Fucile?
    • I am 14 years old and currently in Grade 9 at Wellington Secondary School.
    • I was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy and have been confined to a wheelchair for my entire life.
    • I have limited use of my hands and depend on my computer daily.
  • Computers
    • I love computers and use them in every area of my life.
    • Some of my favorite programs are:
      • 3D Max – 3D animation program
      • Photoshop – a photo manipulation program
      • Flash – 2D animation program
  • My Creations
    • Here are a few examples of the things I have created using the computer…
  • Daily life
    • My computer is used for communication with my friends as well as the outside world.
      • I use MSN Chat to talk with my friends and family
      • I also use web-conferencing to keep in touch

  • Programs I use
    • At school I have a laptop that mounts on my tray. It has a voice recognition program that allows me to write my own papers. It also has an on screen keyboard and a track pad I use for typing when the room is too loud for me to dictate.
    • With my computer I can be independent.

  • Hobbies
    • I am a huge Star Trek fan and was fortunate enough to go to Las Vegas last year to the Star Trek convention.
  • Hobbies
    • Here I am with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. The best 10 seconds of my life!!!
  • Academics
    • My favorite subjects are science and math. This semester I am in the Grade 10 honours Science class.
      • I am also taking a couple of courses online through the Internet with the Learn@Home Program
    • I have been on the Principal’s List for every semester I have been at Wellington.
    • My goal is to be a genetic engineer.
  • At home
    • My older brother and I live part time with my Mom and part time with my Dad.
    • My school computer does not come home with me. I would really like a laptop that I can use at home and take with me. This would allow me to do homework without waiting for my family to help me.
    • This would help me be independent at home.
  • My request
    • I have done research on laptops and have found the Dell Inspiron 1420 to meet all of my needs.
    • It comes with a voice recognition program, it has enough memory to run my favorite programs, and is small enough to fit on my wheelchair tray.
    • The cost of this laptop and all the software is approx. $2200.
  • Quinn Fucile Thank You for the taking the time to listen to my story
