Born without legs and raised in foster care, one teen finds confidence through competitive wrestling. Zion, premiering August 10th on Netflix, proves that possibility is a question of perspective.

Zion Clark was born with caudal regression syndrome, a condition that caused him to be born without a lower body. After being placed in foster care at birth and going from home to home, he was placed with Kimberly Hawkins and she adopted him as a teenager.

After graduating from high school in 2016 with an impressive wrestling career, Zion is currently a student at Kent State University at Tuscarawas and is on the Golden Eagles’ wrestling team.

A multitasker, Zion also plays the drums, piano and trumpet.

He says “I just want them to quit feeling that pity for me. … I don’t know why they’re like, ‘Oh, I feel sorry for you.’ Don’t.”

Watch the trailer below.

      this has nothing to do with God and Jesus…

      stop attribute the works of people to fictional characters…
      He was cared for and treated well by people like you and the infrastructure was in place for him to get to where he is today…

      It involves the people in his life and the infrastructure available to him and him not getting depressed over his issue..

      there are others like him who don’t have the people, infrastructure and mentality that he has..
