I recently stumbled upon a video on Instagram shared by Mathew Pritchard a professional skateboarder from Wales. He captioned the video “When you utter the words “I can’t” then give this a watch.” This is a very good description to explain exactly how incredible this Brazilian Skateboarder is.

The name of the guy in the video is Ruan Silva, he is a 21-year-old guy who lives in Fortaleza, Brazil. I am namesakes with him and that’s pretty cool. All the things that this guy went through have only made him stronger.

I’m pretty sure everyone can learn a lot from this guy through his determination and the skills he has acquired throughout his life.

Watch his videos below the next time you feel like you can’t do something.
