If you see Chris Facenda-Torres walking down the street or standing in a corridor at school and you notice a prosthetic on his left leg, he is not looking for your sympathy nor does he want it. Just say hi and move on because that is what Chris has done.

When Facenda-Torres was born, his left foot didn’t develop normally and consequently was amputated just above the ankle. So living with just one foot is something that Chris is used to and it has not hindered him in becoming the captain of the George Washington Carver High School of Engineering & Science swimming team.
