I graduated from Criminology in 2011; it was my dream to be a police officer. That dream came crashing down when at the end of 2011 I went blind in my left eye. I was put on immunosuppressant steroids to get my vision back and waited for doctors to tell me what was wrong with me. The steroids quickly made me very sick and after an MRI and a visit to a neurologist I finally knew what was wrong, what had caused me to go blind. It was multiple sclerosis. It took me about a month to recover from the steroids, but was told not to run anymore, to avoid high impact activities, basically, give up what I love. So I fought back, I began cycling, began yoga, began pushing my limits and fighting to recover. I chose to fight MS in everything that I do. In the past 4 years I have become the spokesperson for the MS Bike Tour, a member of the board of directors, an inspirational speaker for the MS Society, an MS Ambassador and advocate.
