Chanel is one of the most uplifting and down to earth advocates I have ever had the opportunity to work with and that shines through in every single Instagram post she shares. No matter what the circumstance, she always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude to match. You can't help but feel inspired after visiting her Instagram page!  — Lilly

Chanel finds faith in the hardest and darkest of situations and used that faith to inspire countless of individuals around her. She shares her story openly and honestly to help guide others. She truly is an example of how to LIVE life without being haunted by stigmas of disability. Chanel is a true advocate and there is no one more deserving  — Nicole
