Monika Kuszyńska (Poland): My story

Posted 23 April, 2015, 22:20

After a tragic car accident in 2006, Monika remained partially paralysed and to this day she moves in a wheelchair. She couldn’t continue her career as singer, but didn’t give up her dream to perform on stage again. She didn't submit to despair and helpless passivity. After a number of years focused only on intensive rehabilitation, she returned to active life but above all she has returned to her passion – singing! Her first album, with a meaningful title, Ocalona (Saved) was revealed in 2012. Since that time, the artist remains active, trying to combine art with social activities.
