Conquering those challenges and watching others conquer their own is what drives me. There's always someone you think "has it worse" and you see how they fight on and it's about the most inspiring moments in life. But standing behind our own efforts are people like your dad who gives his time and effort to help better another person's physical life- their literal every moment of every day life. That is awesome! Thank your dad for me!
I'm working on a mechanical engineering degree to start working on prosthetic development and testing (figured who better to test a leg than someone who needs one). Plus i deem testing the limits and capabilities of one's self to be quite fun and exhilarating!
