Isra Somanas is an outgoing 26-year-old with an inquisitive mind and active body. Four years ago, the Bangkok, Thailand native moved to Nebraska to pursue a mechanical engineering degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Isra is also an avid cyclist and dancer—passions that nearly cost him his life. On July 15, 2013, Isra was riding his bicycle home from a night of swing dancing when he was hit by a car in Lincoln. Isra was rushed to Bryan West Medical Center where doctors assessed his injuries – a broken pelvis, collapsed lung and a traumatic brain injury.
