Growing up in foster care, Zion says he was often bullied by other children for having no legs, however his foster mum Kimberlli, who later adopted him, would also be there to cheer him on.


Zion says that people used to pick on him for having no legs, however think that the 'best way to deal with haters is to use the hate to lift yourself up'. Despite having a bad time at school, Zion says he was able to turn it around in senior year, study hard and earn himself a place at college.
