Alyssa is a 23-year-old from Colorado but now lives in a small town in Virginia. When she was just 6 years old, she and her family drove to Oklahoma from Colorado to visit their family for Thanksgiving. They never made it to their intended destination and were in a bad car accident. Alyssa suffered a complete spinal cord injury. Alyssa's favorite motto is, "The only disability in life is a bad attitude." She enjoys going out with friends, being with family, jamming out to music, being with her animals, and eating cheeseburgers!
