“When people see me in the gym, I get a variety of responses. If someone knows someone that uses a prosthesis, they’ll tell me, ‘Hey,I know this person that  just got an amputation. She's really struggling, but I’m gonna tell her she’ll be able to do this stuff.’ And that, hands down, makes it all worth it. Sport can show you how to be strong—not just physicality, but emotionally and mentally.” - @onelegtostandon #sportchangeseverything

“When I was in the recreational gymnastics classes with a bunch of other girls my age, it was discouraging for a while because I would look over and see them doing these amazing skills. You think to yourself, "What if I had started early? That could be me right now." ⠀ Because I started later, I’ve had to work a lot on positive affirmations. No matter how far I end up going with gymnastics, I just want to show everyone I’m willing to try. So, instead of “what if,” it’s more like, “what can happen now?” — Faith Moulton #sportchangeseverything
