FACE EVERYTHING WITH FAITH

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Rafaela Teixeria

After the accident I became another person

My name is Rafaela. I am 25 years old and I live in Brazil. In 2013, I had an accident where I fell from 6 meters high. I was at a party, and when I was going down the stairs I lost my balance. My spinal cord injury is incomplete in Lumbar L1 which caused me to lose the movement of my feet. After the accident I became another person. I feel that I am much better than before, and my will to live is huge. I am an inclusive model and fashion student studying design. My main motivation and the advice I give to others is that you must never give up on anything and always look for personal motivation. Try to see the good side of things, and face everything with faith.
