Lil Sis - Arizona
Hello, I’m Christina Chambers and I grew up in Mesa, Arizona where it’s a billion degrees. Most of my time is spent planning trips out of Arizona’s heat. I’ve been all over the world: Spain, Bali, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and counting. The best part is I’ve done all of it with two wheels attached to my butt.
In 2009, my immune system attacked my spinal cord, Transverse Myelitis, leaving me with a T3 incomplete spinal cord injury. I’ve reached a place of acceptance and I choose to focus on my ABILITIES and the ABILITIES of others.
Currently I am a college student at Arizona State University, studying Parks and Recreation Management. I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. So, in the meantime I coach wheelchair basketball for kids ages 5-13 years old. I fell in love with the community and family that the Rollettes have provided for me. Somehow they’ve turned my dancing from being just in front of the mirror in my room into a Beyonce music video. I’ve met the most amazing women and I am so excited I get to call them my sisters.
