Hi! My name is Lorraine, I'm 26 years old and I live in Brazil. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease (NMO). Within 24 hours after my diagnosis I was paralyzed. I have been using a wheelchair for over 2 years. It's the biggest challenge of my life, but the one that gave me the most evolution. I fight prejudice daily, I fight to have more independence and acceptance. It's hard, but I believe there is a higher purpose! I support paraplegic women and believe in a more accessible world. That's why I fight and that's why I move forward.
