Description
Our most requested guest to date! This episode Dylan Alcott and Angus O’Loughlin talk to Em Carey aka ’The Girl That Fell From The Sky’ here’s a tiny piece of her story with disability:"Isn’t it crazy how life is one thing and then in a single moment it becomes something entirely different. That’s how it happened for me anyway. Here I was, Emma, the girl who loves to run and travel the world and whose biggest worry is what I was having for dinner that night, and then in an instant… everything is changed. A freak skydiving accident is what did it for me.
