The Burns Were Bad Enough, But The Discrimination They Encountered Later Was Even Worse

When I realized what I was looking at in the very first shot of this video, I gasped. The young women in this video have all had their lives changed by accidents resulting in burns. As I heard one heartbreaking story after another, my eyes teared up, as anyone’s would.But having seen this whole video, and the physical and emotional journeys these girls went on together as part of their healing process, I don't think "heartbreaking" is the right word for their stories. And their hearts are most definitely not broken. Just see for yourself.Warning: This video contains graphic imagery.

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.
