After 2 freak accidents I ended up with an amputation of my right foot, and nerve + lymph damage in my left leg. From a young age I was very sick, from battling cancer to learning to navigate my life with allergies, asthma and eczema.
As a kid I had low self esteem, I was sick very frequently and had no physical outlet. Starting from age 11 my doors opened to sports, I started with badminton but missed something. This something turned out to be a bouncing basketball, clashing wheelchairs and the physical elegance of wheelchair basketball. With the start of my basketball career came besides getting fitter, also the start of getting confidence in what I can do.
