At sixteen, I was hit by a car while crossing the street to get to the bus stop on my way to school. I never expected to live with a spinal cord injury (and other injuries) as a result of an accident. It’s a miracle from the Lord I’m alive and able to walk. I would like for others to see how they can overcome tragedies. I wanted to encourage adults and children so I started this blog. I had no idea the amount of people it would help. I’m an English as a Second Language Instructor. I teach classrooms with students who are originally from other countries. I also tutor. I’m the author of the book Not Without God: A Story of Survival. And I had the honor of sharing my distinct story on the campus of Harvard University.
