Still sitting pretty

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Nyree Stevens

Never give up

Hello, My name is Nyree (@sittin_pr3ttii), I'm 26 years old. On December 25th 2009 I became a quadriplegic (c3-c4 complete). I was shot in the neck, which instantly paralyzed me. Ever since then my life has changed for the better and worst. I've been through a lot within these past years, dealing with home care that provided bad service. I've been burned, dropped and neglected. However, I still didn't let it get the best of me. I've been sky diving, waterskiing, skiing, paragliding, and parasailing. And I enjoyed every bit of it. They say the sky is the limit. Now I'm going to school to further my education.  I would love to avocate for people with disabilities. My dream was to become a model, and I would like to still fulfill my dream. Just because im sitting pretty doesn't mean I can't become the next top model. So whenever you feel like giving up, always remember you were given a second chance at life so always make the best of it.
