In 2009, on my way to school in Denton, I got into a truck wreck- I broke my neck, shoulder, wrist, ribs, my lungs collapsed twice, my brain hemorrhaged and injured my spinal cord at the lower thoracic spine- leaving me paralyzed from the waist down.
After the wreck I was determined to get my life back on track ASAP. I re-enrolled at the College of Visual Arts & Design at UNT the following August- living independently only 1 year after having been in a coma. In the spring I will be graduating with 2 degrees and a 3.3 GPA. I want to reward my accomplishments with a statement of strength: I will walk across that stage, and I will do it with my chin up because determination and support can accomplish anything.
