The Schoolgirl Who Broke Her Neck And Became A Racing Driver

August 13, 2020

Nathalie McGloin is the world’s only female tetraplegic racing driver.

But as a teenager she had no interest in cars or racing and had plans to become a lawyer.

Then, two weeks into her A levels, a car crash changed everything. She broke her neck and lost the full use of her arms and legs.

Nathalie spent 11 months in hospital, which she describes as similar to 2020’s lockdown.

Although it was far from easy, she says the time enabled her to figure out her passions and what she really wanted to do which eventually led her to a professional racing career.

If you, or someone you know, has received exam results or is about to make big life decisions, this is the perfect podcast to listen to with plenty of tips on managing a future when plans are turned upside down.
