Amy Hurst is a practising musician and artist but most of all, she’s someone you’re guaranteed a good laugh with. In 2012, Amy had a double lung transplant after coping with the genetic disease Cystic Fibrosis since birth. Therefore Amy’s independence is her ability to find joy in the details of life. She proves daily that independence is more than an alternative lifestyle, but an understanding of what you’ve got, what makes you truly happy, and running with it. She taught me that it doesn’t matter if independent characteristics are outrageous or mundane, they just have to be yours.
