Everyday Hero – Sourena Vasseghi

1 09 2009

Summary: Sourena Vasseghi was born with Cerebral Palsy and has been confined to a wheelchair, but that doesn’t stop him from delivering motivating speeches and being an inspiration to the USC football team.  He is the author of the award winning and critically acclaimed book entitled “Love Your Life and It Will Love You Back”.  He graduated from USC with a degree in marketing and has been a regular visitor to USC games and practices.

My turn: It is great to see Pete Carroll and the rest of the Trojans using Sourena as a source of inspiration and allowing him to share his gifts with the team.  This is just another example of how people can overcome setbacks and live a fulfilling life.

Your turn: Any thoughts on this story?
