How on earth will I ever do this?
There was a time when I was one of those people who believed "I can't do this because I lost my leg." It wasn't until my great friend Ryan Hood pushed me and believed in me that I could skate again. I had heard of ONE person that skated with a prosthetic but being without medical insurance, I thought there was no way I would ever feel the vibrations of a board rolling across the payment. I went on with my life working and pushing myself. But something was missing. I didn't have other amputees pushing me. I didn't know what to do but one day Ryan Hood gave me a board and made me do it. I was reluctant. I was scared. How on earth will I ever do this? Eventually, I met others like me. They shredded hard. They welcomed me. It didn't matter that I was just learning. They were so pumped that I was there and trying. I felt accepted and I knew it was possible that I could one day be as good as them. After time, these people opened my eyes and put a fire in me. I knew I had to do something to help others in the same situation so I started ASK! With the help of so many people we have offered a few clinics in a few different cities. I'm so thankful for the ability to pass on what Ryan, Gershon, Oscar and Justin gave to me. My freedom of my own self value! I can never repay them for that. But I can pass on what I learned from them. You can do anything. Learn to adapt and never stop pushing!
