Bethany Hamilton

By: Natalie Calcote


Bethany is a legend soul surfer who survived a shark attack at the age of thirteen. One month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water and within 2 years had won her first National title. Bethany Hamilton has now become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of determination, faith, and hope. She was a hero and still is to thousands of people!

Can a person with disabilities accomplish as much as a person without disabilities?

I think that a person with a disability can do as much as someone without a disability. Since Bethany Hamilton surfed even though she only had one arm. She also persevered to learn to be a professional surfer and is now a great athlete who can surf perfectly with only one arm!
