At just sixteen, I was hit by a car while crossing the street to get to my friend’s bus stop on my way to school. I never expected to live with a spinal-cord-injury for the rest of my life. I became paralyzed. It’s a miracle from the Lord that I’m alive and able to walk. I’m thirty-seven, a professional, and independent. I walk everywhere with two forearm crutches. I hope to walk with one cane, or without any walking device. I want others to see that they can overcame disability. I hope to encourage adults and children facing this problem. 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!
