Extraordinary Me:
Part of the C4 Extraordinary Teens Season

A series of shorts that celebrate British teenagers and the great things they are able to achieve. Each short tells the story of one teenager who, in their own way, has accomplished something special. They’ll reveal the things, influences and people who have motivated and made them who they are today. Stories include:

Izzy is 14 years old and a national trampolining champion. Her achievement is more remarkable given that she is a quadruple amputee, having lost her limbs to meningitis at the age of seven. She also runs her own YouTube channel which inspires amputees the world over.

Tumise is 18 and has undergone a remarkable physical transformation. Through hard work and determination, this once ‘small and skinny’ teenager is now the number one British Natural Teenage Bodybuilder. He’s also the number 2 Junior Champ in the world.

Maya is 18 and studying engineering, just two years after arriving in the UK as a refugee. She’s also won the Diana Award for changing people’s lives
