Sam Cawthorn has lived a life that may make you see life’s obstacles in a different light. 

He was the Tasmanian Young Australian of the Year for 2009. Only 3 years ago Sam was leading a busy life as a dad and a performing arts teacher, when he was involved in a near-fatal car accident.

His right arm had to be amputated, and his right leg was permanently disabled.  Yet despite all that, Sam now leads an even busier life, travelling the world giving motivational talks to thousands, raising 3 kids, writing a book, and playing the guitar with his motorised arm. Meet Sam Cawthorn!
