Hailed as “one of the five most inspiring women in America” by NBC Nightly News, Bonnie St. John challenges audiences to question their own limitations and shows them how to re-energize their lives to achieve peak performance.

Despite having her right leg amputated at age five, Bonnie St. John became the first African-American ever to win medals in Winter Olympic competition, taking home a silver and two bronze medals in downhill events at the 1984 Paralympics in Innsbruck, Austria.
