Inspirational and charismatic, West speaks candidly about the struggles he overcame after losing his legs at the age of five. He speaks about overcoming stereotyping and bullying, about finding meaning and happiness in a material world and how he never lost the hope or courage needed to overcome personal obstacles. Infused with humor and humility, his thought-provoking message inspires people to find opportunity in every challenge.
