Who is Connor Roemen?
On July 10th, 2021, Connor Roemen’s life would change forever. While visiting his family’s cabin in Iowa he was in a car accident that left him with no feeling in his legs. Now 17 years old, Connor has been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for roughly two months and has even gotten to train with one of his favorite fighters, Gilbert Burns
Why does Connor enjoy training?
Despite his injury, Connor loves how difficult training is and the results that he sees from hard work. While the journey might not be easy, and he certainly faces unique challenges, he likes to look at the positives and tell himself that he WILL walk again
What would Connor’s advice be to those going through rough times?
Lighten up on yourself, keep everything that happened in the past in the past, and work hard in the present to determine your future. No matter what you’re going through, it could be worse, and focusing on the negatives won’t allow you to create a positive future for yourself
