If I could make a living doing what I love, it would be helping with the NubAbility Athletics foundation all year long. NubAbility Athletics helps children with limb-loss get off the couch, off the bench, and into the game they love. From basketball, to soccer, to fishing, NubAbillity will teach the child how to do any sport he/she desires. I, myself, do not have a limb difference, but I have had the honor to volunteer at this camp each summer and I learn so much. I learn that people who are missing a leg, or even both arms, really are not different than anyone else. They can do absolutely anything a person with all four limbs can. It is an amazing experience and I meet many wonderful people while doing this. If I could make a living doing this, it would change the world drastically. I know the founders very well, and they would do anything to reach out to every limb-different child. The foundation is getting ready to go international and reach out to other children who do not live in the United States. Playing sports is what I have always grown up with and loved; therefore, I love helping these children overcome their fears and low self-esteem by teaching them that they can do anything they put their minds to.
