My Scars Won’t Kill My Bodybuilding Dreams | UNBREAKABLE ME

A BODYBUILDER enjoys flexing his ripped muscles on stage – despite suffering from a condition that leaves his chest and back covered in large lumps of scar tissue.
At the age of 17, Isaiah Griffin, now 23, from Wichita, Kansas, noticed his first keloid on his leg – a benign growth caused when the body over heals itself. The condition gave Isaiah extremely low self-esteem, to the point where he couldn’t bear to look at his own reflection in the mirror, but bodybuilding helped him regain his confidence. He won third place in his very first competition and, while his biggest web-like keloid on his chest often prevents him training since it can lead to bleeding and bursting, nevertheless Isaiah has his sights set on becoming a bodybuilding champion.
