Oliver Straub - That's how he rolls

Paraplegia since jumping into flat water at the age of 12. My fifth and sixth cervical vertebra are broken, that’s why my arms are also paralyzed and I can only move them in a very limited way. I use an electric wheelchair. In order to live self-determined I have personal assistants with me all the time. They help me with everything concerning care and house work. They are my hands and feet when cooking or working as an artist, they accompany me outside and on journeys. Thanks to them I can lead a self-determined and worth living life.
