Personal[edit]

Aguilar was born on 3 February 1975 in Torrent, Valencia,[2][3] and attended Colegio Público Miguel Hernández.[3] Before fracturing her spine in a car accident in December 1992, she played handball.[2][3] She represented Spain internationally in handball at the under 17 level.[2] She played club handball as a goalball for Urbana Valencia.[2] As an athlete with a disability, sports she initially tried included swimming, wheelchair basketball and powerlifting.[2]

Aguilar took a break from competitive sport at one point to give birth to her son.[2] Her break from sport was extended after her father got lung cancer and she tended to him until he died from the disease.[2] In 2013, she was getting a disability pension.[2] In February 2013, local police in Alfafar organized a talk about driver education, and Aguilar participated in the talk as a speaker because of the impact a traffic accident had in her life. While at the event, she also signed the city's Book of Honor.[4][5] In November 2013, she was given an award at the fifth edition of the Carta de Poblament awards. She won in the category of arts, letters and sports.[3][6][7] In November 2013, she participated in a program run by the Programa ADOP Empleo to train Paralympic athletes in developing business communication and entrepreneurship skills.[8]
