I never thought I would be hit by a car while crossing the street on my way to school at sixteen years old. I never expected to live with a spinal-cord injury. I was paralyzed. It’s a miracle from the Lord I’m alive and able to walk. I’m thirty-six, a professional, and fully independent. I walk everywhere with two forearm crutches and I’m learning how to walk with one cane. I hope to one day walk with no walking device. I want others to see how I overcame disability. I hope to encourage adults and children facing this problem by sharing messages, comments, and support. I’m an English as a Second Language teacher for a Global Language training company. I also teach classrooms at a Language center. I love what I do. I’m able to meet people from other countries and learn from their experiences. This is my tracking journal on how to overcome paralysis!
