Wild Ride: A Memoir of IV Drips and Rocket Ships by Hayley Arceneaux is quite inspiring. The author is the youngest American to ever orbit the Earth. She is also a survivor of childhood cancer and is now a PA at St. Jude’s. She tells of how surviving cancer when she was 10 years old has shaped her life and made her want to help others.
And The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life by Simran Jeet Singh is also inspirational. He grew up in Texas, but his parents continued to practice their Sikh faith which required him to wear a turban. Despite being on sports teams and having many friends, he still felt different. He also had many times he was treated badly because of his turban, especially right after 9/11. Instead of becoming bitter, he embraced his faith more and shares what he learned by doing that.
