The Girl Who Fell From The Sky

View descriptionShare

Listen to the rest of Mia's conversation with Emma Carey here. 

When Emma Carey was in Switzerland on a once in a lifetime holiday, she decided to go skydiving. But jumping out of that helicopter changed her life forever, because as the ground came up to meet her, her parachute didn’t go off. And Emma hit the ground.

But Emma’s story is about so much more than this moment. And her insights on disability, dating, and why she doesn’t want to be called an inspiration, are riveting.

This is Emma Carey’s story, the girl who fell from the sky.


With thanks to Emma Carey. Buy her book The Girl Who Fell From The Sky.
