You may recall a couple of months ago we told you about the Your Life in Sony 3D contest. The contest solicited life moments from our Facebook community that they wanted us to shoot in 3D. The response was tremendous and the voting was fierce. The ultimate winner came down to the decision of our 2 judges –Scott Stewart and Buzz Hays—both 3D professionals. They chose the following entry as the winner:
Skating is my daughter’s passion. Sierra was born at 1 lb 6 oz has had a lot of medical issues and kids making fun of her because she walked a little different. Sierra is disabled with a slight case of Cerebral Palsy. She never gives up. IF YOU HAVE HEART & PASSION FOR SOMETHING NEVER GIVE UP. She does very well in school. She wants to be the first pro skater with a disability.
Upon finding out that she would be the subject of the Your Life in Sony 3D video shoot, Sierra commented “I’m just so happy to be able to tell my story. I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. I want them to know that you can do anything if you set your mind to it. My mom tells me all the time ‘Sierra there will be a lot of negative in your life, turn the negative into a positive.’”
What better place to shoot our 3D video of an aspiring skater than at ESPN’s X Games this weekend in Los Angeles? The X Games will bring together athletes competing in several action sports including skateboarding. Sierra will have a chance to meet the skaters and learn some new tricks from our very own Sony representative and pro skater Andy Macdonald who will be there competing against top skateboarders.
To get you guys pumped for the Your Life in Sony 3D video shoot on Friday, as well as the upcoming X Games we’re going to give away five autographed skate decks signed by Andy Macdonald. All you have to do is tell us who you are most excited to watch at the X Games in the comments section below and we’ll pick 5 random people to win. Be sure that when you post your comment, you enter your real email address in the email field below (not in the comment area). Without a valid email address in that field, we won’t be able to reach you to let you know you won.
