Anita is a positive and optimistic person who refers to herself as a “lover of life”. She’s passionate about travel, playing sports, reading and spending time with her friends and family.
Highly motivated, Anita is proud of the work she does as a published clinical researcher. She hopes to improve the lives of those living with spinal cord injuries and to maximize her own independence and recovery through exercise therapy.
In an hour of need, a close friend of Anita’s who’d also suffered a spinal cord injury, advised her that she could choose to be happy or miserable. Either way, it wouldn't change what had happened in the past, but it would change the way she would live her life in the future.
Anita chose to be happy.
