A powerful video on many levels. Chelsie shared the story of the accident which happened on a night of a party where she got into the car with someone who had been drinking. They hit a tree and she was left with a spinal cord injury. Unable to walk, as a dancer, she needed to find a way to make dance a part of her life again…and she did. A long road to recovery, she battled many mental struggles, including forgiving herself for getting into a car with someone she knew was drunk.
Her story is a lesson for not just kids but adults —drinking and driving can kill and cause severe consequences to not only you but those around you.
She is also using her experience to talk to others about the consequences of drinking and driving.
