We are joined in the loft by a former world champion wheelchair ballroom dancer, Rida Desai. He is a true example of how a terrible life changing moment does not have to define you and how you live the rest of your life.
Rida Desai is a Cape Townian who had his whole world rocked in an instant, but still somehow managed to deal with it and find light within the darkness. He had his life change one day when decided to go watch some former team mates playing cricket at Newlands Cricket Ground, with some friends. After leaving the match early and dropping off his friends, Rida woke up 5 days later in ICU after being in a fatal car accident, without any recollection of what happened. Rida had to spend three months in hospital and two months undergoing rehab. However he was determined to get his life back on track, not just for himself but to also give his family hope.
