Hello my name is Jacqueline!
I have competed at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games and other international events as a blind speed swimmer. I am now in the sport of track and field where I am on Team Canada and aiming to make podium at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Brazil. I do not let my disability restrict me and my dreams. I chose to do my post secondary education out of province to test what is possible. To push the boundaries of being a student on my own with a disability, attending one of the best universities in Canada, living independently with my guide dog, training and racing away from home. I have dreams of walking with a degree in my hand, and another to bathe the podium in red, white and gold on the world stage of sport. I won’t let what seems to be limitations stop me; rather I use them to fuel me. I welcome you to be apart of my success.
