Liz Marks was a popular all american high school girl who was addicted to her smartphone. She knew not to text and drive but Liz says "Everyone does it." As she was driving she received a text from her mom and in that moment her life changed forever.
The accident left Liz blind in one eye and hard of hearing. It also left her with a diminished sense of smell and she is no longer able to create tears or fall asleep without medication. She says the most difficult part of all of it, was going from being very social and popular to being alone, without friends. Liz will be sharing her story as well as her mission of inspiring teens to put down their phones while behind the wheel. Also joining the conversation is Diana Graber, co-founder of CyberWise.
