A conversation with Emmi Hilbish, an elite wheelchair athlete and graduate of River Road High School. Born with spina bifida, Emmi struggled to walk and was entirely wheelchair-bound by the age of 10. After getting her first sports wheelchair in high school, she discovered a talent for wheelchair basketball, got a full-ride scholarship to the University of Texas at Arlington, and won a national championship with the Lady Movin' Mavs. With host Jason Boyett, Emmi shares about her athletic career as well as the local impact of the organization One Chair at a Time.
