A Fairfield OH teenager who was once bullied for having an amputated arm, now has his eyes set on representing Team USA in the Paralympic Games.  14 year old Austin Osner was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, born with only his left arm, but he said life without a limb has given him limitless opportunities to meet new challenges and help others along the way.  Four years ago however, he was bullied at public school to the point of depression, getting poor grades, and eventually forced to withdraw.  Today, he's a straight-A student dual-enrolled in college classes and an online public school, and he is part of the Peak Performance International Taekwondo Team, training in Michigan, Ohio, and in Florida throughout the year.  One of the biggest moments for Austin was attending a camp for amputee children hosted by the nonprofit USA Patriots, then going back to the public school where he'd been bullied and speaking in front of 1,000 people to share his story.  And he won his first Taekwondo competition!  Read more about the young man who didn’t let bullies stop him from becoming who he is today.
