Raj Gataora had been working at a pub to make money for University. On the way home from a shift, the weather was awful, and a deer ran out in front of Raj's car causing him to swerve.
After the crash Raj was told he wouldn't walk, talk or breathe on his own.
In his own words, "Look at me now."
After years of "sulking" he decided to face the reality that "what's happened has happened" and he wanted to do something with his life.
He completed his criminology degree at Nottingham Trent University, and now leads a full life attending Headway Nottingham, going to the gym and rockclimbing.
