VICTORIA ARLEN

ESPN host, author, motivational speaker and Paralympic Gold Medalist, Victoria Arlen has become world famous not only for her story and accomplishments but for her message: “Face It, Embrace It, Defy It, Conquer It”. After developing two rare conditions known as Transverse Myelitis and Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis at the age of 11, Victoria spent 4 years in a vegetative state. In 2010, she began the nearly impossible fight back to life, learning how to speak, eat and move all over again. After years in a wheelchair, in 2016 Victoria’s endless hard work, determination and perseverance delivered results when she got out of her wheelchair and began walking on her own. In 2017 she competed through the semi-finals as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars Season 25.  Victoria is also carrying out her dream of helping others, serving as the Founder and Co-Chair of Victoria's Victory Foundation.
