TULSA — Emeka Nnaka’s job is to inspire people with motivational speeches.

He always looks at life with a smile on his face. Now, he can do that through the windows of his own home -- one designed to suit his needs.

Nnaka was handed the keys to his home by Tulsa Habitat for Humanity, Thursday.

At 21-years-old, Nnaka played in a semi-pro football game in which he sustained a career-ending neck and spinal cord injury. He is paralyzed from his chest and below.

That has not stopped him from sharing positive words and inspiring others.
