Walking the Red Carpet, Wearing Prada

Walking the Red Carpet while wearing Prada.  Two things I did as part of last night’s opening festivities for Reel Abilities Minneapolis-St. Paul.  My life story is the subject of a 10-minute short documentary film, “Limitless“, and is one of the festival’s films.  Created by Ottobock, it documents my life living with limb loss; using their products; and coming full-circle by now working for the company.

I do not define myself by the loss of my leg.  Never have.  Never will.  But I do realize that my story is unique.  And I realize that sharing it may bring hope to one person or teach another about overcoming adversity. In the end, it’s about accepting life’s circumstances, good and bad.  And using that which could limit us to make our lives limitless.
