Description

My success story of an educator, PhD, a paralympian, a public speaker, is a story of ups and downs, of highest aspirations and frustrations, a story of a polio fighting for self-realization. This is the story of building the world of self-maturing the world that you are building not only for yourself, but for all the people who lost courage, hope and belief, because you feel that you are blessed with the mission to encourage people with disability. And this understanding helps me to draft, to involve in my ranks of successful people a great many of others.
