Throughout the past 6 years, I have had so many new life experiences and not just as a person with a disability. I have learned so many things that I can accomplish and doing so without a leg has meant so much to me. I continuously strive to stretch my own limitations and those that the world places on me as well. It has become crucial for me to see how much I can do to not only prove to myself but also to show others like me that they are more than capable. Helping others to see this has been a purpose for me as well as informing me that these resources exist.
