• #BearsOfBaylor — “That’s why I felt accepted.”

    “I guess one [challenge] that’s obvious is that I don’t have one arm. I really love it when people straight up ask me. I’m just like, ‘Ask me! I’m really cool about it. I promise I won’t get scared. I’m not ashamed in any way.’

    “Up until when I came here, I always had a prosthetic arm, so people didn’t know I didn’t have an arm. … The day I stopped wearing it was one of the scariest days of my life. I thought, ‘People are going to think I’m super weird.’ But they were always super friendly, and that’s why I felt accepted, because, looking back, I never thought that was something I would do. I had my life planned out. I was like, ‘This is who I am; I have one arm at home, and two to the world.’ And, when I came here, I realized those two things could be together. It could be one and it could be my life, because that’s who I am and who I was created to be. I think that, had I not come to Baylor and been surrounded by these people, I wouldn’t have been able to realize that.”
