The Importance of Advocacy

 

I have discovered that my wheelchair brings a new set of responsibility with it. One that I embrace with honor and a sense of privilege. Post injury, I have become mindful regarding education and awareness. I accept this challenge and enjoy the opportunities that come with it. I find it gratifying to demonstrate how important it is to keep on living life and to not give up.

 

Recently, I was honored to be chosen as a recipient of an off road wheelchair. I was one of 10 selected of around 100 applicants, from all over the country.

 

I have enjoyed my adventures with this specially designed chair and have captured my experience with photos. While out testing the boundaries of this wheelchair I had the opportunity to talk with many people, some living with disabilities some not.

My journey off road and outdoors helped put a spotlight on my true passion. I will continue to push myself and test any challenges I face. In doing so, I hope to tear down any social stereotypes that remain regarding disability.
