Back in February I had the honor of meeting Jaide and shooting some images of her for a story HOME Magazine was doing on her. Jaide was born with arthrogryposis, which resulted in limited arm movement in her case, as well as affecting her spine and limiting the flexibility in her legs. However, in spite of all this she is a record-breaking Paralympic swimmer. She was just named to the USA Paralympic Pan American team, and is currently training for the Pan-Am Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico in November!
Oh… and she’s thirteen.
Pick up a copy of the newest HOME Magazine to read the full story about Jaide and her accomplishments and goals. I am honored that I was able to meet her. :)
