Tamara Mena Hosting Reel
Host, Actor & Speaker in a wheelchair! Degree in communication.
AFTER surviving a horrific car accident and becoming paralyzed, and after many hospitalizations, surgeries and many challenges along the way, I graduated from college with the highest honors, summa cum laude! For two months I lost my voice, I could not say anything or write at a horrible time in my life. But from this I had a deep desire to use my voice to inspire people, to change stereotypes, to speak up for the voiceless and advocate for my community, but most of all, to encourage people to keep going in life, no matter what happens!!
There are No limits to what YOU CAN DO regardless of your limitations!
