The Opportunity of Adversity

The Opportunity of Adversity

On July 24th, 2016, I was involved in an accident that lead to the amputation of my right leg above the knee. Six major surgeries and countless hours of physical therapy later, I began to walk again earlier this year. It's incredible how the ordinary things in life like walking, running, and dancing become extraordinary in difficulty, yes, but also in the feeling of pride when you finally accomplish them.
