Talk For Hope: Overcoming Limitations from Cerebral Palsy

Chris-PowellA story not silenced. When I spoke to this radio interviewer, I heard words are slightly slurred  and others annunciated with a struggle. Very quickly into the conversation, I got past the struggle and heard the strong vice and smart mind of this man who has a passion to improve the world by being an example himself of overcoming big time limits.  Christopher Powell interviewed me for 30 minutes on his Overcome Your Limits  radio show about surviving stage IV tongue cancer. I could tell I was speaking with someone who understood the trials and tribulations of turning adversity into opportunity.

Chris was born with cerebral palsy. Despite his limitations,  he began working out and left the wheelchair behind. He graduated from the University of Maryland in mathematics and is the director of a mathematical learning institute. He has even become an avid runner! Chris is the beneficiary of a recent technological advancement called Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 which aides him in completing written tasks and allows for more independence in his overall life.

Chris inspires all who know him to move past your limitations and focus on your gifts! He has many….but just look at that smile and you can tell for yourself!
