Centra “Ce-Ce” Mazyck is an Army veteran, a member of Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) and of Disabled American Veterans of America (DAV). Ce-Ce enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves in 1995 to pursue her dream of getting an education. While in the Reserves, she ended up falling in love with serving her country and went on active duty in 1997. By 2003 Ce-Ce had risen to the rank of sergeant first class in the Army’s elite 82nd Airborne Division and had become a Senior Parachutist, with dozens of jumps logged. However, that year, during a routine training jump at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Ce-Ce suffered a life-changing injury that damaged her spinal cord and paralyzed her from the waist down. She was told she would never walk again. With hard work and determination, Ce-Ce has overcome many hurdles, and resumed her active and athletic lifestyle, and has become an accomplished Paralympian. Ce-Ce took Bronze at the World Championship Games in Lyon, France. She was also a Gold Medalist at the Paralympic Trials for the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. She is a 22-time Gold Medalist at the National Veterans Wheelchair Games. Today, Ce-Ce is in a position to inspire audiences both young and old, and she is relentless in that work. As she likes to say, Ce-Ce is #UNSTOPPABLE.
