If you find your purpose, you find yourself.

If you find your purpose, you find yourself.

Wheelchair tennis brought me back to life!


When I had my accident in June 2007 my life

changed in seconds. It left me paralyzed from the navel down, I can’t feel or move my legs at all.

Turning 18, learning to move independently again and move around in a wheelchair was quite frustrating in the beginning.


I tried my best to find my way back into my new life. For me, the worst loss of all was the ability to do all the sports I wanted to.

One day my friend told me about wheelchair tennis and since then, it changed my life – again – in something so much bigger and better I couldn’t even imagine before.


And it’s not only the sport itself, it’s the people there, too. They are a big community, they all have similar stories and they know about your new obstacles in life.


Wheelchair tennis and all the athletes I’ve met on my way over the last years they all gave me so much power and joy, it all brought me back to life.


Now I train five times a week with my own coach and other wheelchair tennis players. I travel through the whole world to play international tournaments to get better and better because my big dream is it to compete at the paralympics one day.


I guess when I started wheelchair tennis six years ago, I had no clue that if you find your purpose, you find yourself.
