2. This is Chris Koch, a 35-year-old farmer and rancher in Alberta, Canada. He’s pretty amazing.
6. Koch was raised in the town’s small farming community, but he said he was never treated like he had a disability, and it helped make him independent.
“Talking to my dad I asked him, ‘What did you do differently with me than you would’ve with any other kid?’ And he said, ‘Nothing.’ So my independence is almost endless now because of their approach.”
11. Koch hopes to inspire others to live their life to their greatest potential, like he has.
“Some people are ashamed of their freckles, some people are ashamed of that spare tire around their waist,” he said. “… I think if you’re worried about how you look you’re cheating yourself out of opportunities.”
