FROM DOSOMETHING.ORGShark Week might’ve left you terrified of the ocean, so we’ve got a story to inspire you to get back in the water.

Surfer Bethany Hamilton lost her arm in a shark attack eight years ago and had the courage to return to professional surfing. The 21-year-old’s story has gained her international attention, and Bethany uses her fame to help others through her foundation and volunteer work. In fact, she’s so into helping others that she’s been nominated in the Do Something Athlete category of this year’sDo Something Awards. The show is airing this Thursday on Vh1, so Celebs Gone Good sat down with Bethany just in time for an exclusive Q&A about her life challenges, her travels abroad and her biggest celebrity crush!
