me

Hi, and thanks for stopping by! I'm Netta, a girl in her 30s with an interesting life story, so they say :) Until the age of 15 I ran quite a normal life; I was a geek high school student and in my spare time practiced athletics, played tennis and enjoyed making art crafts. Till now an ordinary story... just wait to hear the rest... 

On November 25th, 1994, my life has completely changed. One Friday afternoon, just out of the blue, I became completely paralyzed from the neck down within less than one hour. You didn't expect that, now didn't you? well, me neither... It took a lot of time for the doctors to diagnose what I have had, but finally they came up with a long name: Transverse Myelitis, which is a very rare syndrome that inflates the Spinal Cord and as a result causes paralysis. 

Today I drive a powered wheelchair with my left arm and still believe that my condition can get better. In the meantime I'm trying to do the maximum I can to make my life as normal as possible. I have a Bachelore's Degree in Computer Science and a much cooler Masters Degree in Business Administration & Information Systems, which I both did at the College Of Management. I'm a Web Designer & Developer in a hi-tech company and as a main hobby I paint with my mouth and am a member of the VDMFK (The Association of Mouth & Foot Painting Artists).
