When Sean Speaks Presentation (Sean Carter Story)
At 22, Sean Carter was a college junior out drinking with friends. Sean made a choice that night which changed his life.
When he was ready to call it a night, he simply got a ride with a friend.
Unfortunately, his friend had been drinking too.
Just five minutes from the safety of Sean’s apartment, the driver lost control of his truck and slammed into a tree –
on the passenger side where Sean was sitting.
Sean’s brain injury left him unharmed mentally but physically no longer able to talk or walk.
Since the crash, Sean and Jenny (mother) have embraced their new mission in life
to tell everyone about choices, consequences, and preventable dangers of drinking and driving.
Sean uses his injury and experience as an example to others. When Sean Speaks, Inc: http://whenseanspeaks.com/
