Inspiring Buff overcomes physical obstacles
Heroes are usually found on the field, but sometimes you find the true inspiration on the sidelines. CU sophomore Amanda Aguero was born without her left arm.
Aguero is a student intern trainer for the CU football team. Growing up, she played basketball and soccer. With the support of parents, coaches, and her deep faith in God she always finds ways to overcome.
She faces challenges in everything she does, but she's inventive in figuring out how to do things her own way.
“It almost makes life more fun, I get to be inventive and discover new ways,” said Aguero.
Although being a student trainer is a challenge and she faces some roadblocks, nothing stands in her way. Aguero is able to do the same job as the other trainers.
“The hardest thing since fall football has started is holding the Gatorade racks because you have to be able to hold them all while giving bottles to the players,” said Aguero.
Aguero turns to the Paralympics to find inspiration while others find inspiration in her.
“It’s so uplifting that someone was born in the same condition as me or sometimes worse and they never give up," said UFWO.
She has a deep routed faith in God and her goal in life is to be "Jesus with skin on him." She wants to lead others to Jesus.
Amanda Aguero refuses to give up and knows that through God all things are possible. Aguero truly has the heart of a buffalo.
