Esmée Gum­mer knows a thing or tow about men­tal strength. She was about to com­mence her train­ing at a Pro­fes­sion­al Dance Col­lege when she under­went minor sur­gery that took a wrong turn res­ult­ing in para­lys­is from the waist down. Esmée was told that she could nev­er walk again, bring­ing her hopes and dreams of becom­ing a Pro­fes­sion­al Dan­cer to a dev­ast­at­ing end. Refus­ing to give up on her­self, Esmée endured intense physio­ther­apy and, des­pite the odds, taught her body to stand, walk and even­tu­ally run — all at the age of 18.

Esmée par­ti­cip­ated in Ultra X Jordan 2019 and had, in her words, “one of the most chal­len­ging and uplift­ing exper­i­ences” of her life. ⁣We caught up with her to hear all about her race, train­ing, and her advice for future par­ti­cipants.
