Vasu Sojitra

By Cory Richards and Chris Jerard

The way I view sport is that it's, it's a healing process for everyone. It's a way to connect to the outdoors. It's a way to connect to our natural world or other than human beings as well as each other, to feel a sense of community. And that was that moment. And that's what created like this more motivation to drift away from mechanical engineering, which was the path I was kind of going for with schooling and everything and move more towards adaptive sports. It started building this empathy of like, oh, like, this is what it's about. It's about building community. It's about the love of the feeling that we get that sense of freedom that we usually don't feel day to day because we live in such an aimless world. Because of these power struggles and power dynamics. It's causing a lot of inequities that are happening in this world, and it's causing more and more wealth and more and more privilege to be detrimental to a lot of those oppressed communities.
