WATCH: This Video Starts With A Woman In A Wheelchair. By The End, You Won't See Her The Same Way

In this life-affirming video, Sue Austin goes where few have been... in her wheelchair. Refusing to be defined by pity or limitations, she proves that we can't let ourselves be defined by how other people see us -- and that telling our own story sets us free.

If you like this video, you might also like our Bye Bye Bias edition of TED Weekends, featuring Maysoon Zayid -- a comedian with cerebral palsy who refuses to let you feel sorry for her.
