Pure Grit

by Lily Collison

Nineteen people from across the globe, ranging in age from twenty to seventy-plus, tell their stories of living and thriving in diverse fields — in sport, the arts, medicine, business and more. With refreshing frankness, they share their successes along with their struggles — grit is the one characteristic they all have in common. These are not stories of people overcoming disability — they’re stories of people accommodating disability while pursuing their dreams. Pure Grit shines a light on boundless possibility whatever the individual challenge.

“Pure Grit highlights the lived experience of remarkable individuals, who collectively demonstrate that growing up with a disability brings strength, perspective, and resilience.” Dr. Cheri Blauwet, Assistant Professor of PM&R, Harvard Medical School.

“An insightful collection of stories.” Dr. Christine Imms, Apex Australia Chair of Neurodevelopment and Disability, University of Melbourne.

“The stories in Pure Grit are a testament to human achievement no matter your ability. An extraordinary read.” —Casey Wasserman, Chairperson, Los Angeles 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
