College football referee Christina Snead has made history in North Carolina
Christina Snead has dedicated her whole life to making a difference in sport. 



Most weekends you'll find her officiating high-school American football games in her native North Carolina; the first woman to do so.   



In 2003, Christina was pregnant with her first child and was enjoying what appeared to be a healthy pregnancy, until complications arose while she went into labour. 



Her son Brandon was in distress and his brain was injured during birth. Even though he survived, Brandon has never recovered enough to live at home - requiring a feeding tube, ventilator and around-the-clock care.



Nevertheless, Christina says she will not let adversity stand in the way of her dreams.
