MOUNT HOLLY, NC (WBTV) -
Hannah Martin always wanted to be a dancer. Her mom, Rhonda, has a dance studio in Gaston County where Hannah lived, danced and taught. But in the summer of 2007, Hannah's dream was shattered after she got in a wreck and was told she was paralyzed from the shoulders down.
"I was speeding," she admits. "I shouldn't have been. It was middle of the day. No drinking involved. I was just going too fast. I kinda ran off the road, and the back end of my car hit a tree. My head went back against the seat any my neck pretty much exploded."
Five years later, Hannah says she never expected to do what she's about to do this weekend: graduate (with honors!) from University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a double major in psychology and criminal justice, and a minor in sociology.
"I'm proud of me," she said smiling from her wheelchair. "It's an accomplishment. I didn't know if I'd ever get this far."
Click the attached video to see how Hannah is able to move herself around, how she is able to write papers while paralyzed and how she's now giving back to others.
