Theory:

     Alisha says, “I would probably still have done it because I want everyone to know the difference technology has made in my life. But it would have been frustrating and difficult.”

 

     “I have cerebral palsy and I can’t physically type as fast as I think or anywhere near. But right now, that’s what I’m doing. I bet you’re wondering how!

Explanation:
 
The above paragraphs represent Alisha's experiences and how she has benefited from technology. She would have done things without technology as well, but it would have been more frustrating and challenging. It's indeed due to technology that her work was made easier and more achievable. As a result, she wants to share her technological experience with others as she wants people to know about it and especially disabled people to use it.
 
Alisha, unlike the majority of people, had cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is caused by improper brain development, which usually happens before birth. Some of the signs and symptoms include exaggerated reflexes, floppy or inflexible limbs, and uncontrollable motions. As a result of her cerebral palsy, Alisha has been unable to type quickly though she would like to do so. But now, she was able to type the words she was thinking of as quickly as possible, thanks to technological advancements. People would be curious to hear how it happened to her, she says. Let's take a look at how technology had aided Alisha.
