Discover the talent of physically challenged

The physically challenged in this context, refers to people who have physical disabilities or impairment, especially one that limit mobility. They are often wrongly regarded by some as not being able to contribute to the society in a meaningful way.

 Cute,right? Its Nick Vuicic from Melbourn, Australia and ..not sure this is his son or not, btw, his son name, Kiyoshi...sound like Giyomi~~~FYI, he just married last year 2012, to be specific valentine's day 2012, why so romantic~~~?

many physically challenged are able to overcome all odds in order to prove that they can equally capable as the rest of us in the society.

“When there is a will, there is a way”,

 what they need is a chance.

And because of this, year 1 students from Advanced Diploma in Mass communication (Public Relation) from Tunku Abdul Rahman College, Penang Branch Campus (TARC) is organizing an awareness campaign on discovering talents of the physically challenged entitled

“Don’t overlook me”

Date:20 July 2013
Time:11.00 am to 3pm
Venue: Penang, Straits Quay

To unveil the talents of the physically challenged people through stage performance and exhibition of their crafting skills.

Through this, we hope to channel a message that the talents and abilities of the physically challenged can benefit business financially and organizationally. Besides, we will have the public to participate in several mini games together with them as personal involvement creates and enchance the understanding between both parties.

The event collaborated with a few welfare organizations to raise the awareness among the stakeholders which includes :

Society of the Disabled Person Penang (SDPP)

BTW,can't stop myself from looking at Nick Vujicic's photo..

 at just 6 months old

I found this photo from here. This website come with come information about him as well, head on to reading =)

Jessica Cox without arm got her pilot licence....

again, there is a will, there is a way, an armless girl can get a pilot licence, what's more can be defeat?!

The point is
never give up

strengthen your will

 Just imagine if Nick Vujicic without hands and legs keep comparing himself with others......he won't achieve anything!

Sometimes, I need we just no need to bother how others think of us,well its natural habit that people tend compare between similar people, but don't you think you would live far more better without comparing with other people in negative ways??

Hence, don't always compare between people, cause everyone of us is unique, and well I think I am unique, because my mindset is always different from others.....Well, why do I need to think the same with the majority, my decision won't harm others too~~

  1. This is such an inspirational post! I love Nick's story too. Makes me think that if he can do it we can too - and that success or failure in in our mind and in our hopes. Thanks for reminding me about Nick. Did you know he was/ is doing some seminars in Malaysia? He has also written a children's book about reaching for your dreams despite the odds.
