Why did you become a peer mentor?
I wanted to become a peer mentor because I have learned a lot about living a full life with a SCI and I want others to realize their potential. I have been extremely blessed with the support of friends and family and the ability to continue with rehab throughout the years. If I can add something positive to someone’s recovery process, I would love to give back. Of course, there is no denying that a SCI is a life-changing event, but life will continue to go on, and you should be able to enjoy it!
