Wednesday Watch: Amy Purdy
The 2018 Winter Olympics are right around the corner and motivational speaker and Olympic snowboarder Amy Purdy is gearing up to compete! Amy Purdy has been through hardships that most of us will never face — or can even fathom. But what makes her story so incredible is not that fact that she lived a “normal” childhood and spent her high school years as a passionate artist and snowboarder, then traumatically lost both her legs at age 19, but how she has persevered, taking implausible challenges and rising above them.
Amy Purdy teaches us to live beyond our limitations. She talks about the power of imagination. She explains how our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by the choices we make. Imagination allows us to break down borders, to move beyond our circumstances, to create and constantly progress.
