After losing his leg in a car accident, Jake Dahreddine, 21, surpasses the physical limitation of having one leg by conquering difficult tasks overlooked by able-bodied human beings. Dahreddine does not let his disability keep him from reaching his potential, as exemplified by climbing an old stump that used to house a tree swing he would use as a child with lifelong friend Will Guerry. In successfully ascending the tree stump independently for the first time on July 31, 2016, Dahreddine epitomizes perseverance against all odds.
