A medical student who was paralysed after he fell from a tree said he hoped he can inspire others through his positive approach to life.
Xander Van der Poll, from Balsall Common in Solihull, suffered a spinal injury at his parent’s house in 2017.
He said he wanted to remove barriers and encourage others with disabilities to live their lives to the full.
“People will tell you that you can’t do it and that kind of fuels you a little bit to show that,” he said.
“Especially if you know that you are able to.”
