You've probably heard the saying "It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters." Epictetus
But, to literally see it in action is a whole other ballgame.
Tell me your story, about circumstances that you have overcome.
Like Julia Sullivan. She's 16 years old and lives in Nebraska. Her dream like many teenage girls was to make the cheerleading squad at her high school. She tried out 3 times, but never made it. She still isn't going to give up. Her story of perseverance in midst of tough circumstance made the news in her hometown. A cheerleading coach 800 miles away heard her story and decided to do something about it. She gave her a spot on her cheerleading squad on the biggest night of the year, Homecoming, in Michigan.
Her dedicated parents flew there just for that one game so their daughter, Julia, could fulfill her dream of becoming a cheerleader. She wore a modified cheerleading uniform made just for her, cheered on the sidelines from her wheelchair, and was the star of the final stunt. You see Julia was born without arms and legs.
She says, “I love to get the crowd going, and I’m just excited to show the world what I can do,”
Way to go Julia. I don't know about you, but when you see someone like Julia pursuing her dream relentlessly not letting anything limit her it makes you want to show the world what you can do too.
