Samantha Lopez


My name is Samantha. I was injured in 2012 when I fell from a 3 story apartment and as a result I have a T12 spinal cord injury. I have been on the dance team in 2014. Joining the dance team was and has been the best choice I  have made. Dance was something that I always wanted to do and always caught my attention before my accident, but it was never something I actually pursued. About after a year into my injury, I realized how short life is and how I should be spending it by doing what I love and basically just taking chances in life. I don't think I could have fallen in love with dance if it weren't for the girls on the team. They have made this journey unforgettable & the bond that we have is unbreakable.
