We, the human beings are just a dream chaser, when something comes in between our dream, we don't let our dream go away any easily. We will in fact, start working more and more hard for it. Some people might get to know their dreams a bit early and some might find it a bit late, but this doesn't stop them from achieving their dream.
Lauren Watson is one of the examples proving the above statement as true. She mastered over her seemingly impossible dream and made it possible. She worked with Fireworx Entertainment and the Sydney band Little Fox to make her whole family and the country proud.
A 34-year-old, Lauren Watson from Queensland, Australia with incomplete paraplegia shocked doctors by turning herself from being on a wheelchair to become an aerial artist.
In the year 2000, Watson met with a Car accident, which left her partially paralyzed from the waist down.
Watson remained in the hospital for six months and struggled with physical therapies for a decade.
Then one day, Watson came across with aerial demonstrations at a mall. She took around a month to find an aerial school and finally found Industry Aerial Arts, a school that offered her complete support & guidance.
In the first six months, she couldn't do anything. She said, "I couldn't climb but I didn't give up. If you do, you'll spend the rest of your life wondering what if."
In approx two years, Watson became a professional aerial artist by adopting different poses and tricks. She also performed with Flyworx Entertainment and in a music video for the Sydney band Little Fox.
Because of high focus and continuous practice, she was able to chase her dream. She said, "Aerial makes me realize everything is achievable because I feel empowered to take on new challenges, I always find new ways to make it work."
