Out of the ordinary.
Caitlin Sarubbi, 15, is a volunteer, star athlete and model student. This might sound like your average girl, but Caitlin has overcome some major obstacles. She was born with ablepharon-macrostomia, a rare condition that results in a deformed facial appearance. Caitlin is also legally blind and hearing impaired. But even 44 reconstructive surgeries over her lifetime have not kept Caitlin on the sidelines. This past December, she took a gold medal in Level 2 Giant Slalom at Colorado's Ski Spectacular and is currently training to qualify for a spot on the U.S. National Paralympic Ski Team. But we think her best event yet is giving free ski instruction to disabled soldiers as a volunteer for the Wounded Warriors Project. "Disabled does not mean 'not abled'; it just means differently abled," says Caitlin.
