Steven Claunch was born without fingers on his right hand and with one leg shorter than the other — visible disabilities that some basketball opponents used as reason to dismiss Claunch on the court. He always proved them wrong.

But Claunch’s Ted-Ed talk below, brought to life by animator Avi Offer, isn’t about sports. It’s about overcoming your obstacles, whatever they may be.

“There’s no dishonor in having a disability,” Claunch says. “It’s true I have a disability, but so do you. I also have an ability. So do you.”
