AIAA LA & LA Aero Club May 2009 Dinner Meeting Featuring Carlana Stone

AIAA LA & LA Aero Club May 2009 Dinner Meeting 

Featuring Carlana Stone

About our speaker: Carlana Stone (

Carlana Stone, acclaimed author, international speaker, and Emmy-nominated, Award-winning television producer - invites you to a discussion:


For a teenager who had everything going for her, a life confined to a wheelchair may seem like some tragic ending… Just spend 5 minutes with Carlana Stone and you’ll believe her life is more of a fairytale. A fantastic journey that certainly hasn’t ended… but rather, just begun.

“Circumstances don’t define a person. Rather, they provide an opportunity for us to find out just what we’re made of and that’s when we begin to realize our true potential.  That’s when our true Courage is revealed.”

Stone was only 17, when a momentary lapse of judgment changed the course of her life forever… she got into a car with a friend who was driving drunk. Carlana lost the use of her legs, but never lost her adventurous spirit…

Carlana is a Pilot. She also Skydives and is a Certified Scuba Diver.  When she’s on the road, however, you’re more likely to see Carlana zipping around town on her Harley Davidson, rather than her convertible Mustang.

Carlana doesn’t just embrace life, she yanks it around and takes it for a wild ride… Breaking stereotypes and challenging stigmas has become a way of life for Carlana.

“Pay no Attention to Boundaries!”

Stone became the first wheelchair-wielding reporter for ABC in Miami, Florida. She is an Emmy-nominated television producer; and the acclaimed author of Never Give In, Never Give Up.  Stone delivers keynote speeches in venues all over the world, including Britain’s illustrious House of Lords.  Carlana is also the founder of, a non-profit organization integrating social networking with social activism. “With the single click of a button, each of us can now become a catalyst for positive change.”
