I’ve known Sheila for several years, over 10. Maybe longer. She’s just this dude, you know? She’s regular people. Fun to hang around with. To talk to. To soak in a hot tub with. She spins fire. She does Tae Kwon Do. She inspires people. She inspires ME.

Now what makes Sheila so inspiring is that she does not take no for an answer and works her butt off. She was born with TARs, as she says: “a rare genetic disability and doctors expected me not to survive.” She survived, alright. Not only did she survive, she thrives – and puts many people (myself included) to shame. She earned her Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and has been featured in a Korean documentary about her achievement. She’s a motivational speaker. She codes her own website!

For the past few months Sheila has been writing her life’s story, and she is now ready to publish it. To do so, she is doing a bit crowd-sourcing through GoFundMe. If you have a few extra bucks, would you consider passing them her way. I can’t express enough how much I want her to succeed in this. She has a fantastic and inspirational story that should be shared far and wide. Here’s what Sheila says about her campaign:

I was born with TARs a rare genetic disability and doctors expected me not to survive. I have spent my life succeeding when others said I would not! Today I spin fire staff, have a second degree black belt in tae kwon do, scuba dive, and I am an inspirational speaker. My book is all about me becoming independent while living with a disability.
