Quadruple amputee speaks to students

Kyle Maynard Kyle Maynard

Back to school for students in Forsyth County, Ga. began with a powerful message from a man who's been dealt his own share of obstacles and overcame them.

"It's not when we're comfortable… it's when we are stretched, we grow and grow."

A life lesson at North Forsyth High School from Suwanee's own Kyle Maynard, a man who's never had it easy.

Born with no hands or feet, the world wasn't quite set up for Kyle.

He's climbed life's mountains and the 25-year-old even became the first quadruple amputee to reach the top of Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro.

But his biggest passion: telling anyone who'll listen to never give up on their dreams.

Watch to hear more about his amazing story.
