Sarah Manuel has never taken “no” for an answer. Despite living life in a wheelchair and being given a death sentence as a child, Sarah has never accepted her limitations. When Sarah was told to be satisfied to merely exist, she told anyone who would listen her dreams for the future including having a meaningful career, falling in love, and having a child. Sarah successfully turned those dreams into reality, and now she has taken these hard-won life lessons and teaches others how to envision the future of their dreams, discover their purpose, and turn their dreams into reality.
