Meet Egypt an optimistic 19-year-old from Montezuma, GA! This high school senior never misses an opportunity to embrace her competitive nature. Whether it be on the basketball court with her team or breaking barriers in flag football by becoming the only female quarterback in the county!
In February 2022, Egypt’s post-graduation plans of attending South Georgia Tech and studying the film industry were placed on hold. Egypt was involved in a head-on car collision, which resulted in paralysis from the waist down.
Following the incident, Egypt was admitted to The Shepherd Center, a nationally ranked rehabilitation facility in Atlanta, Georgia. She participated in daily physical and occupational therapy sessions in hopes to regain her independence.
Even during the most difficult circumstances, Egypt’s big personality shines bright! Her goal is to get back on the court and compete in a wheelchair basketball league. Egypt admires the NBA athletes on the Golden State Warriors roster and dreams of being front & center at the Chase Center to watch her sports idols play!
