British artist Sue Austin has been using a wheelchair for nearly two decades and has been trying to fight back the negative stigma people have about individuals in wheelchairs. She refused to accept what other's believed limited her, held her back and immobilized her; being in a wheelchair.
Austin became involved in diving in 2005 and proposed the idea of diving in a wheelchair. Of course she faced backlash over her suggestion, but with the help of engineers, dive experts, academics and funding her vision to dive in wheelchair was achieved.
