Briana Walker Location: Anahiem, California

On a bright California Sunday afternoon I was driving on the 55 freeway when I fainted at the wheel of my black Honda Accord, hitting the cement median at seventy-five miles per hour. A young, aspiring dancer, just 23 years-old at the time of my accident, I was determined to create an amazing life in spite of my new circumstances. One year after my accident I became the first female ever to be featured on the cover of Mobility Management magazine. Shortly thereafter I became the Krypto Girl for Colours in Motion Wheelchairs. My images have now been used glabally on buses and billboards to change the face of disability. I now enjoy skydiving, surfing, snow skiing, wakeboarding, competing in triathlons, bungee jumping, and most of all dancing. After meeting another Colours' model who was also a dancer, I learned to transform my wheelchair into a dance prop, and together we created one of the first ever wheelchair hip hop dance teams to take the national spotlight. Speaking to groups all over the country, I've shared my contagious rebellion and inspiring courage with thousands teaching them the principle no matter what life throws at you DANCE ANYWAY!
