Alex Schwartz, Missouri

Alex has been a double amputee since age 1 due to a rare condition, although he hasn’t allowed this to slow him down. He has experience and is pursuing acting in TV and film, modeling, and entrepreneurship through his own service business. With a YouTube channel racking up over 5 million views hosting educational, comedic, and videos on more serious topics, he stays busy in leading by example. One proud achievement is one of his videos winning the #MyWinningMoment contest by Ossur, a prosthetic company headquartered in Iceland. Alex hopes to one day have the means and platform to inspire and give back on a larger scale.
