At age 25, Kijuan Amey had ‘life by the horns’ serving in the Air Force as an inflight refueling specialist, playing semi-pro football, finishing his bachelors degree, and launching his own business.
Then on an unassumingly beautiful day in May a motorcycle accident changed his life. Kijuan was left without the ability to see, but as he puts it “I may have lost my eyesight, but I didn’t lose my vision”.
Kijuan’s story is one of turning tragedy into triumph and finding the ability to smile through all he has faced. If you’ve been to Valor Games SE you know that smile. He has been competing since 2019 in tandem cycling, powerlifting, archery, air rifle, and boccia.
