RHI Sports Helps NCAA International Mentee! December 1st, 2014

The NCAA hosted Lizzie Kiama, an international mentee from Kenya. She visited with the RHISP Director, Jake Patrick, and participated in practice with the RHI Indy Brawlers Rugby Team and RHI Youth Wheelchair Basketball teams. Lizzie is the Director of

This-Ability consulting in Kenya, Africa. She started this consulting firm after she became paralyzed from the waist down. When she was only 18 she was in a car accident that led to her disability, but she did gain strength back to walk again. After the birth of her child Lizzie again lost mobility and uses a wheelchair to get around. However, she embraced her new identity and started This- Ability consulting which is dedicated to supporting and improving opportunities to communities, specifically persons with disabilities. Lizzie’s recent project “Women on Wheels” focuses on providing friendly competition in wheelchair rugby for women with varying degrees of disabilities, which work toward breaking down existing stereotypes and increase understanding. Lizzie’s goal in the next five years is to grow her consulting business nationally and regionally in Africa.
