Milestones

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Says he's in the same boat as the road-trippers-he's 23 and still trying to find his road.
When he was wrestling in middle school and high school, he kept getting his "butt kicked."
His dad told him that he hadn't won a single first-year match either, convinced him to keep at it; later found out his dad had just lied to motivate him.
Says his parents always taught him that he should find a way to persevere and keep at the things that mattered most.
His biggest problem with the education system is that "it prepares you to be an employee," rather than nurturing unique dreams and interests.
Says that there are ways around working for someone, encourages young people to build their own businesses around the things they love.
Opened No Excuses Crossfit Gym, an athletic facility with a focus on building a community of athletes.
Says if he could go back and change the way he was born, he wouldn't-his disability has actually enabled him to make a huge impact.
