When an airline broke his guitar during transport, he wrote a song about it and garnered over 13,000,000 views. That’s what lemon-squeezers do: they take a problem and turn it inside out into a solution.

Story:

A very successful model and grounded, wise woman who has very popular video on women’s appearance and healthy self-image: she helps women see beyond physical beauty.

She’s been a model for Victoria’s Secret, Ralph Lauren, Benetton, Chanel, and more, and on the cover of magazines like Vogue, so there’s no doubt about it: Cameron Russell is a good-looking woman. But she says, “Looks aren’t everything.” In her talk on TED.com (Ideas Worth Spreading), she explains the illusions propagated by the beauty industry and how they affect women’s self-image and self-esteem.

Focus: Challenged
Reason: What mean this word, "can't"?
Story:

At age 13, surfer Bethany Hamilton was attacked by a shark and lost an arm. Just over a year later, she won her first national surfing title at the NSSA National Championships. The news media did not let her go unnoticed! She told her story in her book Soul Surfer, which was made into a major motion picture (starring Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid, Carrie Underwood, Kevin Sorbo, Craig T. Nelson, and more) in 2011 by the same title. Also, in 2007 Becky Baumgartner made a documentary about Bethany, entitled Heart of a Soul Surfer.
