Proving there is nothing in this world you can't accomplish if you put your mind to it, Ali Stroker became the first person in a wheelchair ever nominated for (and, later in the evening, to win) a Tony Award.

The 31-year-old Broadway star made Tony Award history when she took home the trophy for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical for her portrayal of Ado Annie in Rodgers & Hammerstein's 'Oklahoma!' According to Fox News, Stroker was paralyzed from the chest down due to a car crash when she was 2-years-old.

She pursued musical theatre as a kid even though there weren't many like her in the industry. Her desire to achieve her goals kept her pursuing her dream. She appeared on 'The Glee Project,' a reality show that earned her a guest spot on 'Glee.' She made history once before with her first appearance on Broadway with her role in 2015's 'Spring Awakening,' as the first Broadway actor to use a wheelchair in a production.

Upon winning the award Stroker said in her acceptance speech, "This award is for every kid who is watching tonight who has a disability, who has a limitation or a challenge, who has been waiting to see themselves represented in this arena — you are." She went on to tell reporters, "Living with a disability, you can feel limited at times. But when I sing, I can fly. I am free." Truly an inspiring example to all.
