When @espn asked me to be apart of their #BodyIssue, I was honored. When I found out I made the cover, I actually cried.

This ones for every man, woman, or child facing some sort of adversity. You control your circumstances, they don’t control you. Find your passion, and let it consume you. If a little one legged lady can climb rocks and chase mountains, I promise you, you can do whatever it is your heart desires. Thank you to everyone involved! #climbing #climbon #leftlegless On a lighter note, if you don’t like butt cracks or tattoos, don’t look!
