We spoke with Krista via email in August 2012.

Krista, 18, is a freshman at the College of St. Scholastica in Minnesota. During her free time, Krista volunteers at a faith-based older-adult living facility, coaches and plays sports, and spends time with her friends. We talked with Krista about her experience as a person with disabilities who is an athlete and coach, and how her role as a coach has allowed her to influence other young people with disabilities and advocate for the differently abled.
