I am an elite wheelchair racer, Paralympic ambassador, public speaker and assistant professor at Vanderbilt University. I strive for athletic excellence and leading a life filled with integrity. I am the 2011 World Champion in the 200m and hold two bronze medals from the Paralympic Games in Beijing, China. I had the honor of representing Team USA in London at the 2012 Paralympic Games! I am currently recovering from surgery. I had some significant setbacks, but hope to make a full recovery and start training again! Thanks for following me on this incredible journey!

I appreciate your support.

En Route to PHX

En Route to Phoenix

Never a dull moment in the life of Anjali! I am sitting here on the plane, somehow functioning after the past 2 days of very little sleep and two-a-day practices. Remember that paper? I am happy to say that just 3 minutes before boarding the plane I emailed it off to one of my co-workers who graciously agreed to help me out and print it to deliver the hardcopy to my professor. Cars are known for going 0 to 60mph in say 3.9 seconds, this girl went from 0 to 24 pages in less than 24 hours!!

Baltimore

Baltimore

I wish I could tell you that Baltimore has also been an incredible event, but it has not been. The school visits themselves have been wonderful. The kids are always so very excited to meet me, as am I. I’m continually impressed by the questions that I get and I can really tell which kids are thinking things through and applying what I talk about to their own lives. It is a rewarding experience getting to meet these kids.
