I've learned in my life that it's important to be able to step outside your comfort zone and be challenged with something you're not familiar or accustomed to. That challenge will allow you to see what you can do.
There are a lot of people who can be classified as heroes and do great things and inspire me.
I'm going to write a book, continue acting, continue motivational speaking and just share with people who I am and what I've learned in my second chance of life and pass it on to people in their first chance of life.
I think in life, if you continue to challenge yourself, you can pride yourself in what you continuously accomplish.
I don't have a weapon in my hand, and I don't have a uniform on my body, but my uniform now is my scars and weapon is my words, so I'm still serving.
It's hard for people sometimes to relate to me. They weren't in the military, they weren't injured overseas in Iraq, they weren't burned, they didn't go through 33 surgeries, or two and a half years in the hospital.
My father left... but I tell my mom - and I told my mom this when I was a kid - I said, 'You know what, Mom? Good thing he left because you're a strong woman.'
I believe that we all have something to share with someone else that can better someone else's life.
In this life, all you need is for someone to believe in you.
I love helping out good people who are doing good things.
When the body doesn't want to go on, the mind continues to fight.
I have good stamina and good endurance.
The thing is, a lot of our vets come home and they feel displaced, and they don't feel like their voice matters, so for me to be a spokesman and have that honor to educate America about who we are and what we are, it's like I'm doing my job.
I want to, at the end of the day, be able to say, 'I am a runner.'
Dancing is a beautiful thing.
