Proving the Doctors wrong with Caudal Regression Syndrome

My name is Tanja and I was born with Caudal Regression Syndrome. According to doctors I would not be able to sit up, walk or do anything by my own. I am here to tell you that I am proving the doctors wrong because I am a fighter. I have had numerous of operations, but that doesn’t kill me. It makes me stronger. According to my opinion you can do anything you want to do. It is up to you, how much you believe, fight and work hard on it. There are limits only in the head. I was a very active child. Therefore I have started wheelchair racing and it is my passion. I have started six times at the iwas junior world games and this year I have started at the European Championship in Berlin. My ambition is to take part at the World Championship next year in Dubai and at the Paralympic Games in Tokio 2020. For these goals I work hard on every day.
