Katelin's Story

16 year old Katelin Gunn's life changed forever in December 2018 when the car she and two of her school friends were driving in suddenly rolled, leaving her with life threatening injuries.

When Katelin eventually woke up in hospital, the doctor delivered the devastating news that she was paralysed from the waist down.
But it wasn't the end, it was the start of a new beginning...

Since that day, Katelin has fought with all her might to be the person she's proud to be today - strong, brave, focused, measured, loving, apirational and grateful to be alive.

This is an incredible story of will power and raw determination to defy the odds and overcome.

Don't tell Katelin she can't do something...

Director Statement

It was an honour to tell Katelin's story of resilience in the depth and quality that it deserves.
Her incredible spirit of determination is an inspiration to all and it was deeply moving to witness the positive impact this film made on her and her community.

Too often those living with disabilities are marginalized and overlooked in our society. To be able to show people that Katelin is as strong as anyone was a truly powerful thing.
