Description

When it comes to dealing with adversity, Scout Bassett has had more than her fair share. Born in Nanjing, China, she was abandoned after losing her leg in a fire when she was around 18 months old. At age seven she was adopted by a family in the United States and had to adjust to a new language and new culture. Despite her disability, Bassett was always passionate about sports, and eventually learned to run using a prosthetic leg. Bassett tells her story to host Ibtihaj Muhammad about how she eventually made it to the Paralympic Games and in the process became an icon for perseverance and determination.
