Hello, my name is Wesley Bandemar, I’ve existed for 27 years now, it’s been an interesting journey so far, especially the last 11 years. I've sat, observed and learned about the world. I've defined for myself what is important and what matters in life. I know that at an unknown time I will cease to exist. Whatever this experience is, I recognize that I have choices, I started off on a path set by my ancestors and parents, but I’m in control now. There are moments in life we can’t control and sometimes shit happens.. I broke my neck and was paralyzed at age 16 doing what I loved, racing dirt bikes. This isn’t who I am, but it’s something that happened and played a major role in shaping who I currently am. I carry the labels of; athlete, racer, competitor, teacher, learner, filmmaker, graphic designer, creator, vegan, fighter, lover, traveler, son, brother, and uncle. I believe in the saying “be the change you want to see”. I believe in self-responsibility, we have a choice of how we act and what we do before, during and after every event. I believe that health and fitness are vitally important to living the best life. I believe being a hard worker is one of the best attributes a person can have. I believe that gratitude isn’t the only key, but it is a key to happiness. I believe in doing the right thing, if the right thing is an option, regardless of how difficult it may be. I believe there are no excuses. If you come up short, you at least know that you were on the right path. I believe having faith that you are on the right path and approaching things you don't or can't understand with a positive mindset, is beneficial. If you want to do something, try and keep trying, even if it seems like an impossible task. This brief summary of who I am will change, but this is how I currently see things. I’m on a journey with the aim to accomplish the goals I've set for myself. When this experience is over I want to have been a net positive for the world.. Thank you for your time and I hope you're living well!
