I was in a car accident on November 17, 2003, when I was 19 years old. A car ran a red light and T-boned my car on the driver's side. The impact was so severe that my neck broke at the second cervical vertebrae leaving me paralyzed from the neck down.
I never expected to break my neck and become permanently disabled at such a young age, but I've adapted well and have made the best of my new life. I can honestly say that I'm one of the happiest people I know and I wouldn't change my life even if I could.
