My name is Bethany Hamilton and I live in Hawaii with my family. My passion is surfing and I hope one day I can be a professional surfer. I like to participate in a lot of surfing competitions since was a little kid. So a while ago, I participated at a very important competition that made me go to another competition.
So with my friend Alana we were really happy about it. So we went surfing with Alana's father and brother. When I was in the water I was waiting for the perfect wave to come when...
I hope I can catch a good wave today
A shark bit my arm, I was shocked. I didn't move just in case. My friend and her father took me to the hopital where I had surgery. When I woke up I found out that I didn't have my arm, and that meant I couldn't surf anymore.
My father taught me to how to surf whitout my arm. With a lot of patience and time I did it and I entered a surf competition.
The night before the competition I decided to go surfing. Then, it's started to rain, I tried to get out, but it was too late. I was hit by a lightning bolt.
Unforunately I died, but my family founded a surfing school on my honor. My legacy was somewhat larger than a surf school, it was that you can do whatever you want no matter what.
