Last week I wrote a piece called “Essays in Courage.” It was about a 16 year old girl with Cerebral Palsy who taught everybody at Adaptive Climbing held at Brooklyn Boulders a lesson in life with her courage.
Despite the confines that the universe throws at someone with Cerebral Palsy, last week Nadia climbed like a champ and didn’t give up until the blisters formed, burst and even bled. The link to that story is here below.
If that wasn’t tough enough, after me (I’m always early) Nadia was the first to roll into BKB ready to climb. Her dad and her brother, ever present, and ever supportive, she was quickly rigged up and ready to climb.
As these pictures show, she came, she climbed and she conquered. She put me in my place for being a ground floor climber as she looked at the wall three moves ahead and Nadia monstered the wall and topped it. Congrats kiddo you’re my hero.
