“I was born a paraplegic with locomotor disorder which didn’t allow me to function like other kids. I was born with a brother and a sister and I would see them walk around and play and that would instill in me such yearning to function like them. I would watch with sorrow as they left to school and I was certain that I was the only one who was abnormal from the rest.
But then, my parents put me in a special school and here is where I met so many other kids just like me and I felt motivated to give my best to prove myself despite my limited ability.
With the immense help and support of my parents, I completed school and also my graduation as a bachelors of sociology. I started to make jewellery seeing some tutorials online in my free time and I set up shop on Facebook which picked up really well. Eventually, seeing me, people wanted to interview me and that led to other opportunities like modelling and acting.
I have also won the world record for lifting two glass jars of 1Kg each upside down with two fingers of each hand.
For my part, I have faced my fair share of challenges. It is difficult to survive as a wheel chair women in this society and there is still a lot of stigma around modelling and acting but I have the immense support of my parents to back me up.
My goal is to empower each and every special person in this world and make them believe in themselves and understand that, they are unique. All of us are unique and we each have our own merits and demerits. But that should never stop us from exploring our limits and aiming for the stars. You never know who you might be inspiring in the process.
