overcome

After she was bullied by classmates, 9-year-old Milla Star Bizzotto ran 36 miles, swam over 5 miles, and overcame 25 obstacles in a 24-hour endurance race designed by Navy SEALs just so she could silence her critics and ‘show other kids that they can do or be anything they want.’ Source Source 2

Milla told the Miami Herald

 “I don’t want to play video games. I don’t want to Hoverboard. I don’t want to do things to make life easier. I want to be comfortable being uncomfortable. I have one body and it’s all I want and all I love.”

“People would call me names and say I wasn’t a good player. I didn’t want anyone else to go through what I did. I want to set an example and show other kids that they can do or be anything they want.”

“I want to inspire a generation. I don’t get bullied anymore. I know how to stand up for myself now. And I love what I do. I want to do it forever.”
