Its Okay to be Different: Life Lessons from a Paraplegic

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Becoming A Paraplegic has made me stronger

Hi, I'm Jeslinda, a paraplegic from Malaysia. I became a paraplegic in 2015 when I was 23 after a car accident. Three years later, I see myself improving day-by-day. The accident and recovery helped me turn into an even stronger person, maybe not physically (haha) but definitely emotionally and mentally! All I want to do is send a message to the world to never ever give up. Positive thinking and being grateful for the moment has helped me look at life from a different perspective, and indeed life is so beautiful. It is not the end of the world when you become a paraplegic, its just that the physical ability is limited, not your ability! You can still do whatever you want, and travel the world, if you put your mind and heart into it. I love traveling, and I have travelled to places where I thought I could never go. I will soon complete my undergraduate studies. I am completely independent now, and I am so thankful for my life. Never forget to be kind to yourself and to those who are unkind to you.
