“You just have to have a strong mind and you have to be able to put work into it.”

Looking for something  to help get you through the grind of the work week? Look no further than the story of 16-year-old Faith Oakley.

Faith has no use of her right arm due to damage that happened at birth. But that didn’t stop her from taking up archery. Unbelievably, she uses her teeth to pull back the bowstring, and she’s really good at it!

She was encouraged to take up archery in the fourth grade. As you can see, she had to come up with her own unique technique for shooting.

It works for her, and who can argue with the results? In the future, she hopes to compete in college archery and eventually the Paralympic Games.

We’ll definitely be rooting for her to do just that. Thanks for the day’s inspiration, Faith!
