Tajia Rodriguez has spent her entire life defying expectations. The 21-year-old has cerebral palsy, but it’s never stopped her from making her dreams come true.
When she was a baby, doctors told her parents she probably wouldn’t accomplish much. She proved them wrong when she walked across the stage at her high school graduation, and she hasn’t slowed down since! This year, she hit an incredible milestone, taking more independent steps than ever before!
“I want everyone to know that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE and NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!! Took me 21 years to get here and this is just the beginning,” she wrote. “Won’t stop until I’m running!!!”
Celebrate with Tajia as she nails 16 steps in a row in the video below, and share this story to cheer her on toward her next goal!
