A Broken Body Isn't a Broken Person

Pilot Janine Shepherd started out as a cross-country skier headed for the Olympics, until a truck accident left her as a possible paraplegic. Hopes dashed, she became depressed until with complete willpower, she taught herself to walk again. 

Shepherd tells her amazing story in this TED talk, in which she advocates "A Broken Body Isn't a Broken Person." This is an ideal close to our hearts, as we always want women to know that their pain does not define them and that they are certainly greater and stronger than it. Like Shepherd says, your pain is not your identity, and we hope you will always know that. Just ask Janine!
