Athletes with Disabilities Network impacted my life when I first became an amputee. Having an opportunity to attend the Extremity Games allowed me to see athletes of varying levels of disability compete in different sports, showing that life does not have to stop due to a life changing event. Being able to engage and speak with different participants and try many of the different sports gave me my confidence back and sparked my competitive spirit again. From that point on I had a new direction and purpose. I would never have thought of the athletic opportunities as a para-athlete if I did not attend the games. This has lead to me making the US NAtional Team this year a compete to qualify for the 2016 Paralympics
