An aspiring lawyer, Shantel Thompson’s dreams of helping her community were put on hold after the unthinkable happened. She was shot and suffered a spinal cord injury. Shantel recovered at Madonna, fueled by her strong faith as she healed. She also shifted her focus to regaining strength and reclaiming her independence. “I don’t want that one moment to define me for the rest of my life,” Shantel said. “I still want to go on and become a great lawyer, have my own family one day, and help the people of my community.”
