Lexi Wright (19) left her wheelchair and used a walker to cross a stage in her cap and gown to accept her diploma.

An Ohio teenager, who has cerebral palsy and was never expected to be able to walk, shocked her family and friends by doing just that at her high school graduation.

Lexi Wright, 19, left her wheelchair and used a walker to cross a stage in her cap and gown to accept her diploma at the Ravenna High School ceremony last week, according to Record-Courier, a newspaper based in Kent.

The teen said she simply wanted to surprise her family and was stunned by the crowd’s reaction. She said she plans to keep working on walking.
