Matthew Curcio is a 21-year-old New Jersey native. He currently resides in St. Davids, Pa., where he is entering his senior year at Eastern University and pursuing a degree in English and writing. Matt was diagnosed with congenital muscular myopathy at a young age. Matt is single and a full-time student who lives in a dormitory with his closest friends. Matt is pursuing a career as a full-time author and speaker. He is a passionate follower and believer in Christ and through his faith has found limitless strength in a reality that expresses limitless weakness.
Matt is the youngest of five children and the third to be born with a neuromuscular disease. He has one goal outside of writing and speaking: to advocate for young men and women with physical disabilities. He believes that there is no better voice to be shared than those who have disabilities and have been deemed by much of society as voiceless.
