Sheila's story is about making the impossible possible. She was born with a rare congenital disorder called TAR (thrombocytopenia absent radius). Now, as an adult, Sheila knows how to live positively, stand up for herself and fight against ignorance. She is a survivor with a will to accomplish anything and everything she sets her mind to. Her story is about overcoming adversity despite challenges. In June 2010, the public reaction to Sheila achieving her black belt in Tae Kwon Do inspired the activist in her. She started a new career as a motivational speaker. She has spoken about her life - how to live in an able-bodied society with a disability. She has spoken to audiences about the importance of self advocacy and the will to succeed and most importantly, thrive.

I will prove you wrong!
