Aron Anderson isnâ€™t your typical millennial. For starters, the 29-year-old Stockholm resident travels more than 130 days a year, visiting children in war-torn countries and giving motivational speeches to audiences across the globe. Heâ€™s also penned an autobiography (Opportunities, which launched in August), appeared on TV, and raised millions for childhood cancer research. And then there are his athletic accomplishments: Anderson has summited Kilimanjaro and Norwayâ€™s Trolltunga, finished two IRONMAN competitions, skied across Antarctica, and biked from MalmÃ¶, Sweden to Paris. But perhaps most impressive is the fact that heâ€™s done all of this without the use of his legs.
