Chelsea Werner – Athlete
When Chelsea was born, the doctors told her parents she would always have low muscle tone among other things. She is a 4X United States Special Olympics Gymnastics Champion and 2X World Champion.
Starting with Special Olympics at age 8, winning those titles, she is now training to compete in the USA gymnastics – that is 100% full inclusion. She has found it to be much more difficult than Special Olympics, but her performance has never been better. Her life story was featured on the Today Show. And soon after that she was approached by H&M to film a commercial. She was flown to Havana, Cuba for filming and absolutely loved the experience!
Since then she has been featured on the cover of several magazines including Teen Vogue and Dazed Magazine.
She has done quite a few campaigns including Aerie, Tommy Hilfiger, Summersault Swimwear, Target, Girlfriend Collective and Women’s Best.
She is thrilled to be breaking down barriers that individuals with disabilities have faced for a very long time. Chelsea is changing the world through her advocacy and hard work. What a great role model!
