At sixteen, I was struck by a car while crossing the street to get to my best friend’s bus stop on my way to school. I never expected to live with a spinal injury. I became paralyzed. It’s a miracle from the Lord I’m alive and able to walk. I hope to walk without a cane or walking device. I want others to see how they can overcame tragedy. I hope to encourage adults and children so I started this blog. I had no idea the amount of people it would help. I’m also an English as a Second Language Instructor for a Language training company and I teach classrooms. I love what I do. I’m able to meet people all over the world. In December, I had the honor of sharing my story at the Harvard Faculty Club at Harvard University. Above is a picture of me speaking there.
