Sky dive to raise money for the Brain Injury Association Otago

Dunedin, Otago

3 years ago I fell 15 metres from a balcony. On that fateful day, I sustained my traumatic brain injury, now a proud part of who I am.

A significant part of my journey with brain injuries has been the support of the Brain Injury Association Otago (BIAO). This service does an extradaniary job, straddling both community support and advocacy. For individuals with brain injuries, this mahi has a profound impact on our lives, helping us to navigate the new world we find ourselves in.

For me, BIAO ignited my passion for amplifying the voices of my disabled whānau. This began with me educating students at the Otago Medical School on my lived experience with brain injury. Fast forward 3 years and I am proud to represent the Otago Disabled Student's Association (ODSA) as copresident, connecting and representing the disabled student community.

As I continue on this journey I carry the memories of life with a brain injury, the support and inspiration of BIAO, and the fall that set me on this path.

To honour that day and the vital mahi of the Brain Injury Association Otago I will be doing a SkyDive on the 20th of April. to raise money for BIAO.
