We often say that after an accident, a second life starts and you need to learn how to live again. I am Emmanuelle Mörch and mine started in 2008 after a snowboarding accident which left me paraplegic, it was the year of my baccalaureate. My family was an amazing support during that period of time and I managed to find positiveness and energy from that event. A few year after my accident, I joined the engineering school Ecole Centrale Paris and I graduated with my diploma in 2015 while leading a top sport career in wheelchair tennis. I am now number one in France and I played the Rio and Tokyo Paralympic Games.
Determination - Rigor - Perseverance
After Rio and Tokyo, I aim to play the 2024 Paris Paralympic Games. I would then be the first French woman in wheelchair tennis to achieve this performance. To reach my goals, I surrounded myself with a competent team involved in my project. I still need financial and material support because a tennis career is expensive and tournaments price moneys are not sufficient to live from it.
