Crowned Ms. Wheelchair USA 2012 and winner of the National Rehabilitation Champion award, Tasha Schuh continues to travel and share her story of resilience and triumph over her tragedy.
“My Last Step Backward” is Schuh’s first book about her erudite journey as a quadriplegic, beginning with her pre-accident years as an adolescent to the details of the accident, her near-death experience following surgery and her life during and after recovery.
“It traces my journey from the depths of despair to my realization that life goes on and it is what you make of it,” Schuh said.
Schuh has taught herself not to settle, to set goals and to go after those goals regardless of the situation. Despite her condition she has found her identity and aspires to expound upon her experience to help others.
“There is so much negative and horrific news in the world, my book gives hope and inspiration, that despite a debilitating situation you can live a life you never dreamed,” Schuh said.
