This story is a very inspirational, Judy O’Connor and her son Marty O’Connor in California. Their story is so heartwarming Marty fell down a flight of stairs and became paralyzed from the shoulders down. As a former competitive snowboarder and volleyball player, he knew that he had to push himself to attend physical therapy five days a week in order for his body to be in a better place.
When he was written for Chapman University, he added that, “While my body was in a better place because of that, mentally, I was just kind of lost. I needed that mental confront and sought after to add some professional value to myself.”
Just two years before his misfortune, Marty had graduated from the University of Colorado in 2010. After he realized that he needed a new mental faced to inspire him, Marty decided to go back to school and work towards getting an MBA from Chapman University.
