A local man known around the world is getting his very first home.

Tulsa native, Emeka Nnaka, is a local advocate for people with physical challenges. Nnaka suffered a spinal cord injury while playing football and has traveled the world telling his story and inspiring others.

Nnaka recently lost his apartment in a fire, but Tulsa Habitat for Humanity volunteers are going to provide Nnaka with a new home.

"It's a little surreal and it's even crazier knowing that there is a house being built around me by my community that I love so much,” Nnaka said.
