  • On growing up“When I was younger, I used to not take my leg off at the pool, and wouldn’t tell people I had one leg. If I was limping one day because my leg was bothering me, I’d be worried people would notice. Now I take my leg off in the middle of class and leave it in the walkway! I let people take my leg off in the airport. I’ve embraced that ‘this is Bethany’ and I won’t hide. I love that I’m different. I love that I have this uniqueness about me that few people have. I love my leg and I love myself. It’s funny thinking about it now, I just live!”
