The year 2022 was action-packed, filled with great people and memories. My Quantum power wheelchair with iLevel® has been along for the journey, helping me achieve many things. Here are some of the great highlights of the past year.
Cheering on the Bengals with My Quantum Power Wheelchair
2022 started with my favorite team, the Cincinnati Bengals, making a run to the Super Bowl. It was a dream come true to see the Bengals play in the Super Bowl, and even though we didn’t win the game, I will carry those memories with me forever.
In addition, one of the year’s highlights was when I attended a Bengals game in Cincinnati, which marked an item off my bucket list. The Bengals beat the Atlanta Falcons 35-17, and my Quantum power wheelchair with iLevel gave me a great view of the action. Seeing my favorite team play was an emotional affair and something that I will never forget.
Taking My Quantum Power Wheelchair to College
As I wrapped up my junior year of college, my Stretto power chair roamed all over UNC Charlotte’s campus. I was named Niner Times assistant editor of the year and was promoted to the sports editor position. With iLevel, I successfully led my staff during meetings, as being raised up helps me instruct and teach the writers.
Over the summer, I attended a conference hosted by the National Sports Media Association, in Winston Salem, N.C. I learned about different writing techniques. Being elevated at iLevel on my Stretto power chair helped me mingle with other journalists and to see presentations.
In terms of my skills as a writer, I got out of my comfort zone by writing new sports articles and dipped my toe into opinion writing. I am more in love with journalism and want to pursue a career in it. I won multiple scholarships and decided that I was going to continue my education by going to graduate school at UNCC.
Family, Friends and Everything in Between
This year, I celebrated my 22nd birthday with a party with all my close friends. It was a great celebration filled with food, fun and fellowship with the people who mean the most to me. I attended a ton of school functions and sporting events, plus experienced new things and met new people. I discovered my passion for disability rights through my work with Quantum and made great memories with all my friends and family over the holidays.
Throughout it all, my Quantum power wheelchair was with me and the level of independence my power chair gives is a huge reason for all the memories I made. Here’s to 2023 and what it holds for all of us.
