International Day of Persons With Disabilities

I am teaming up with One Place East & Laugh-Able to talk about all things disability to celebrate the International Day of Persons with disabilities 🎉

Hi my name is Isaac and I have disability called limb/pelvic hypo/aplasia which in short means I have no arms and short legs, I also have scoliosis which is the curvature of my spine. Even though I have this disability it hasn’t stopped me from doing what I can’t. Skydiving in Ohio, skiing in Geneva and most recently becoming the president of a outdoor sports club called Wheels and Wheelchairs where rollerbladers push wheelchair users in different places. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it!

I’m Saifur. I have a disability called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as Brittle Bones. My impairment doesn’t doesn’t stop me from living my life to the fullest. I have an IT background and currently work for 3 organisations. I was a Games Maker at the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games which was one of the best experiences of my life. I love traveling to different countries, and my last holiday was Brazil earlier this year. No matter what disability you have, don’t let it stop you from living your dream. I go by my motto: Live Your Life to the Fullest!

Getting to know your hosts
