This Beautiful Commercial Left Me In Tears. Just Watch This.

Nico Calabria is a 19 year old who plays soccer, wrestles, and teaches gymnastics. At the age of 13, Nico raised over $100,000 for charity by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. This is a major accomplishment for anyone, but especially for Nico, since he was born without a right hip or leg.

Nico says his parents didn’t coddle him or allow him to make excuses.“My parents always instilled an attitude of, ‘Hey, tough luck, man. You were born with one leg. Now make the best of it.’”

Now he is starring in a Powerade commercial that debuted at the Kicking and Screening Soccer Film Festival at Tribeca Cinemas in New York and it will also air during the 2014 FIFA World Cup this summer.

He said, “I think that attitude isn’t specific to having a disability. It can apply to everything.” If Nico's story inspires you, share it with your friends and family.
