I’m Sebastien Bellin. Sports fans may know me as a professional basketball player. I played at the highest levels of European basketball for 15 years, in Italy and major Belgian clubs. After my career, In 2012, I helped launch a fantastic startup that created and marketed basketball automated video technology. On March 22 2016, I was ready to check-in when the two bombs went off in what became the Brussels Airport attacks.
A bullet shattered my right hip, I lost a lot of blood, and nearly lost my legs. But my mental and physical strength allowed me to overcome and reach a unique and lesson-filled accomplishment …survivor. I decided to grab this second chance in life with both hands. I try to spread my message as much as possible, to inspire people. Very humbly, I’m on my own inspirational crusade!
