On those days that it gets tough you must try to remember why you started and then you will know why you must continue
Hey! I am Jesse Lee Botha, a twenty year old paraplegic. I had a horrific car accident two years ago where my aorta was ripped from my heart leaving my spinal cord without any blood supply, causing paralysis. There are days where living with a disability becomes unbearable and challenging, but I am grateful for the friends and family I have in my life. Regardless of my disability, I decided to pursue wheelchair rugby as a hobby but due to me being a paraplegic I cannot compete on a professional level. I also enjoy body building and testing my body's limits. My message to those out there living with a disability is the following: On those days that it gets tough you must try to remember why you started and then you will know why you must continue.
