Bethany Hamilton
She is a courageous,hard working,and optimist young lady because a month after the attack she got back on her board and continued to surf. She lost 60% of her blood and survived several surgeries. She also was positive during recovery. Bethany Hamilton created a foundation called friends of Bethany which supports shark attack survivors. She was able to touch a large amount of people with her message.
Tom Dempsey
He was hardworking, fearless and never quit just because he didn't have any toes. Tom also didn't have any fingers, but he never used that as an excuse. He liked to hit people and didn't really care. Tom Dempsey also set the league record for longest field goal. He got kicked off the team at his college because he punched his coach. When he had time off of football he was a bricklayer and a wrestler
