A person that I admire

Nick Vujicic is a person I admire. He was born without limbs. His own mother who was horrified at his appearance rejected him but his father thought he was beautiful. School was tough for him, he struggled socially, physically and emotionally as he got bullied. He attempted suicide at the young age of ten as he felt he had no value and was a burden to his parents. He has travelled to about 57 countries giving many motivational talks where he attracted large crowds.

Nick Vujicic teaches us that whatever challenges we might face, whatever disabilities we might have, we can always overcome them. We should never give up.
