Imagine you’re living your life like you do every day. Then, imagine a life-altering situation happens, where from one moment to the next, your life as you once knew it is forever changed.
Mélange ‘Accessibility for All’ magazine interviewed me about my life-altering spinal cord injury. I spoke about my car accident, the major adjustments I had to make in my life, how I regained my confidence, the technology I use that helps me to live a full life as a wheelchair user, and how I don’t allow myself to be defined by my disability.
This is my story!

I have included my screenshots of my interview below. However, I encourage you to check out the full magazine as well. It has a lot of interesting profiles and information related to accessibility. For example: interviews with the founders of Izzy Wheels – your one-stop shop for decorative wheel covers, Runway of Dreams that works with the fashion industry to bring adaptive clothing to the millions of people living with a disability, a profile on Sailability Antigua who have made sailing accessible for people with disabilities, and many more.
