Ben Hughes has been confined to a wheelchair most of his life. But that doesn't seem to stop him from pursuing his dreams.
"It don't bother me," he said, with a smile.
He does what many young people like to do - fish, listen to music, hunt, work on do-it-yourself projects and text message his friends.
Ben, 20, was born with spina bifida, a birth defect that occurs when a baby's spinal column doesn't completely fuse.
