About

I live in Southern California with my family. At age 18, I was paralyzed from the shoulders down in a car accident, and I am now living my best life as a quadriplegic.

Some of My Past Experiences

Once, I Joined Every Single Extracurricular Club at My High School
(1994-1995)
I didn’t actually stay in all of them, because I got kicked out of speech and debate because I ditched a competition to watch a movie at a nearby theater, which was “against the rules” for some reason. Also, I didn’t like Future Farmers of America or FBLA, but I did have a real presence in the yearbook that year.

Middle School Citizenship Award of the Year
(1994)
This was kind of a big deal, guys, because they only picked one person per grade to receive this high honor. And my eighth grade class had like 300 kids in it, maybe more. I also got a trophy. I know my parents were proud of me, but they didn’t congratulate me with a parade, or a day on the calendar to celebrate me, or confetti, or by giving me a car, or you know, by giving me a hug and telling me that they were proud. They gave me a “good job, Kim.” But I really would’ve liked to have extended this accomplishment in my life, which is why I’m bringing it up right now.

That Time I Got to Ride in a Helicopter
(1999)
Coincidentally, this was also the day I broke my neck, and the helicopter I was riding in was a medical helicopter transporting me to the hospital! If I hadn’t had just gone cliff jumping, this would’ve definitely been the highlight of that day.
