Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri where it was hard for a young African American male to find opportunity outside of the streets. He found himself getting into bad situations and making poor decisions. At 16, he was on his own, homeless and in a bad place.

He then learned that he was going to become a father and decided right then and there that it was time for a change. His beautiful daughter Nevaeh was born September 9, 2009 when he was only 22 years old. He fought for and gained the full custody of Nevaeh.

But life has a way of changing the path. January 14, 2012, at 24, Wesley was shot multiple times by a stranger. After three weeks in ICU, he woke up paralyzed from the waist down. It was a new life, and one restricted by wheelchair, which meant two-year-old Nevaeh. He suffered from depression and had medical complications from the weight. Though he knew he had to make the efforts to be a good influence for his daughter.

Fitness and nutrition were a way to not only lose weight but to feel happier and healthier. In the first year of this new routine, he lost 100 pounds and left the dark cloud of depression. He realized the importance of fitness, especially for those who have disabilities and started The Disabled but Not Really Foundation. It’s a non-profit that encourages people with spinal cord injuries to get some sort of exercise regardless of their ability.

“Nevaeh is my heart and soul, motivating me to be the best version of myself that I can be. I strive to stay humble in my success and set a good example. Positive attitudes go a long way when you’re battling the tough stuff. And fitness and nutrition play an important role in building and maintaining positivity. One of my main goals in life is to encourage others to believe in themselves and achieve their own greatness.”- Wesley Hamilton
