Angela

Angela Rockwood was a successful model and blossoming actress when she was paralyzed in a 2001 car crash on her way home from San Francisco. Although doctors gave her only a slim chance of ever feeling or moving anything below her neck, Angela underwent pioneering treatments in Portugal, which allowed her to operate a manual wheelchair. An Ambassador for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, she has worked closely on the organization’s minority outreach campaigns in Asian-American communities. Angela recently divorced her husband and has now shifted her modeling career into high gear as she takes new steps towards independence in Los Angeles.
