Overcoming obstacles - don't diss my ability (Notes)

After watching the video (attached link), click "Think" and answer the related questions. Then, write a paragraph or more about a situation where you had to overcome an obstacle. How did you feel - before, during, and after? What did you do to overcome your obstacle(s)? Additional resources: 1.

Steven Claunch, who was born without fingers on his right hand and with one leg shorter than the other and has excelled in basketball nonetheless, explains why obstacles can provide an opportunity to both inspire others and develop character."
