“My wheelchair is not a limitation, it enriches my life”
I’ve always been very active. From a young age I already had many hobbies like playing the saxophone, horse riding and dancing. After my animal care studies, I chose to continue learning and become a Para veterinary. This is a physically demanding job. Back in the day I was very agile, which was perfect for ballet, but by the time I was 22 my body couldn’t bare it anymore. I was diagnosed with patella luxations, meaning that my kneecap dislocated frequently and I had to rehabilitate from this several times. The fear of the luxation happening again really got to me, so in 2014 I decided to have surgery. After 1,5 year I finished rehabilitation and was able to do almost everything again.
