Don’t Be Afraid of the Pain – Rivka Shotkin

Rivka Shotkin, a 16-year-old teenager living in Passaic, NJ, is the youngest guest yet on the Meaningful People Podcast. As a result of a devastating skiing accident that severed her spinal cord, she is paralyzed from the chest down.

Over the next few weeks we will be designing and creating quotes and merch inspired by Rivka Shotkin.
