When Vital Zinger was a baby, she was paralyzed by cancer. Today, Vital is a world champion dancer, a pioneer for accessibility, and a queen of wheelchair sport!
As an Israeli dancer and a disabled dancer who has won awards for her latin dance, she not only knows how to dance in a wheelchair and succeed in sports with her disability, she has the pride, determination and spirit to work past any adversity.
Vital has become an activist in Israel for wheelchair accessibility, achieving her first victory at her own high school when she was just 16 years old. She went on to be a lawyer and discovered a serious passion – and talent – for latin para dancing!
Now, Vital is a world champion wheelchair dancer, and has proved that with perseverance, you can transform any challenges into success.
She’s not the only one to dance through adversity. See the hero that helps Syrian children dance through their troubles, below.
