Why did you become a peer mentor?
I became a peer mentor because I know how important it is to have someone you can relate to after a spinal cord injury. In the first few weeks after my crash, I was so comforted to meet and connect with people who had gotten back to normal life after SCI. I want to bring that feeling of comfort and hope to others through peer mentoring.
