Blind boy with incredible will
'I just believe that I can't be stopped'

Published on Jan 31, 2015
SEATTLE -- Meet Hamoody Smith, a fearless, wildly ambitious 12-year-old boy.

For a moment when you see him, you are struck by what's different about him physically: The facial disfigurement. The prosthetic eye. The misshapen nose.

But within moments all of that is gone, and you are struck by what's different about him in every other way; the life that seems to pour out of him in endless streams, the energy that never ceases, the intellect and the drive.

He loves to get physical. You should see him grinding and gutting it out on the wrestling mat. He throws 'em down. They throw him down. And he loves it.

Hamoody is aggressive. You could even call him cocky. His is an invincible, unbendable will.

As he sits on his bed wearing a Marshawn Lynch jersey holding a football, with a WSU pillow propped up behind him, I ask him about his life philosophy. His credo. He answers this way: "What I do is I'm thankful for my setbacks, and those have become my blessings."

"How do you make that happen?" I ask. He stops for a moment and then replies, "I just believe that...I can't be stopped."
