Joshua Reyes has severe burn scars on 95 percent of his body. He uses his harrowing experience as fodder, speaking to others about overcoming obstacles.
At 2 years old, Reyes poured a bottle of flammable liquid on his body, confusing it for water.
He was standing close to a water heater that then exploded, burning his body severely.
His mother died in an attempt to save him. Before she passed, she told Reyes to use his circumstance to inspire others.
She said, 'I give my life in order for my son to be able to be a great speaker, a great preacher, a great minister, whatever it is.'
