Life isn't easy. Family and community are essential. Stay close to those who love you and don't let go.

-Bethany Hamilton


She is a professional surfer who survived a shark attack in 2003, which her left arm was bitten off.

Impact on the world

She is very inspirational because even after she got attacked by a shark and lost her left arm, she still surfs. She is a good example on why people shouldn't give up in life. Through everything she has been through she still kept her faith in God and never gave up.
