Before her tumor and amputation, Connie was a die hard soccer fan – and still is to this day.
“I’ll watch anything and everything when it comes to soccer. I’d love to start playing soccer again. One hundred percent. I saw people doing it on your Instagram so that really got my hopes up.”
Besides soccer being a huge sports passion of hers, Connie rode horses competetively, went hiking, rock climbing and so much more. To Connie, it has always been less about perfecting a sport and more about chasing the adrenaline that came with trying and succeeding in new things. Once she started going at it on her blade, she experienced the same type of adrenaline kick – even with the little things.
“Before my journey I just took my body for granted, so I’ve just been convinced that I wasn’t able to do anything. But I’m finding new things now that make me push myself again. Just like the old Connie.”
