A groundbreaking performer, Ali Stroker made history as the first actress in a wheelchair to appear on Broadway when she originated the role of 'Anna' in Deaf West's acclaimed 2015 revival of Spring Awakening. She is also the first actress in a wheelchair to graduate from the NYU Tisch drama program. She has starred on both The Glee Project and Glee, and is currently starring alongside Kyra Sedgwick on ABC's new drama 10 Days in the Valley. Stroker's remarkable ability to improve the lives of others through the arts, whether disabled or not, is captured in her motto: Making Your Limitations Your Opportunities."
