“I am the last born in a family of six children. When I was five years old, my parents realised how slowly I was growing in height and my difficulty in walking any distance.
After secondary school I took a first level diploma in secretarial studies, however due to financial reasons I could not continue my studies enough to be employed. However, in 2008, I got a job in the Ministry of Youth and my life is improved.
My dream in life is to be a dancer and an actor. My vision and my mission is to become an international dancer, performing in festivals and encouraging disabled people in society to realise their dreams and to believe that all is possible with courage and personal determination. My disability has become my ability to reach the sky in my lifetime and see my dreams come true.”
