María Díaz


Hi, I am Maria Diaz from Chile, I am 28 years old, and exactly ten years ago, my life changed drastically. I was on my way home with 3 of my friends when a stranger shot a bullet into the car I was in. Since that moment, I decided to move forward with my life, thanking for this second chance of my life. One year after my accident, I took all my belongings and came to the capital of Chile to live all by myself. Here, I discovered my abilities in Paralympic sports and decided to become a professional Paralympic tennis player. I had the wonderful experience and opportunity to travel worldwide, representing my country with excellent results. Thanks to my love of sports and because I think all in life is about decisions, I have dived, skied, golfed, and, my favourite, sky-dived. I love photos, social media, makeup, fashion, and make publicity in my country. I think that in my life, there are no limits, and this is an excellent opportunity to show the world.
