TEAM USA – Femita Ayanbeku: “Life after amputation can still be great.”


Femita had an accident at age 11 which resulted in part of her right leg being amputated. Her altered body caused her to develop a negative body image for much of her childhood but she didn’t internalize the social stigma she experienced nor allowed her disability to define or stop her from pursuing her goals. Today, 25 year old Femita is a graduate, Founder of non-profit organization Limb-it-less Creations Incorporated, and 2016 US gold national medalist for 100M after just 6 months of training! Femita oozes strength of mind! read on as we connect with her. More
