When it comes to accessibility in public spaces, there's still a lot of work to be done. Carolyn Pioro knows a lot about that. After experiencing a life-changing spinal cord injury in 2005, Carolyn has found innovative ways to overcome her own accessibility obstacles. (Jess Allen got a personal invite to check out the technology Carolyn uses to make her days run a little more smoothly—click here to watch it.)

In the clip above, Carolyn joins the hosts and talks about the accident that left her paralyzed from the shoulders down. She also opened up about coming to terms with her new reality, finding new passions, and how she's managed to be so resilient. 

Watch the inspiring conversation in the video above.
