When it comes to living her life, nothing seems to stand in Ashley Lyn Olson’s way. At 14, a horrific car accident killed her father, crippled her mother, injured her younger sister and left Ashley paralyzed. Her physical limitations didn’t stop her from seeing the world. And…in 2006, she founded wheelchairtraveling.com, a resource for people with disabilities. The site averages 25,000 monthly visits and its 70+ videos have been viewed half a million times. You’ll want to meet this passionate, ballsy, determined, young woman.
