You would be inspired by this physically challenge woman

Picture credit: MINE

I took my break from bubbling to have my lunch and decided to watch TV alongside the eating.
I saw on local TV a woman who had no hands right from birth and had to be raised single by the mother because the father divorced the mother the day she was born. She had to attend school from grade one writing all through with her foot up to the teacher training college. She does all the activities that a normal humans would do using her foot. She cooks, baths her children, you name it. All with her foot.

She happens to be a trained teacher by profession and teachers in one school owned by the Roman Catholic Church. 20 or so years are hidden in her experience as a teacher. In the year 2008 she was giving a national award in Ghana “the Order of the Volta” as a model for the physically challenged in the country and beyond.

“Her story made the rains come down heavily from the eye witnesses and freely ” People cried not because they felt pity for her but rather they were inspired by her achievements
Her ambition is to become a lawyer.
I want to use her story to encourage us never to give up in life no matter your condition. You can be whatever you can if you work at it.

Her presence feels people with emotions anytime she is on television

Yes but what she has not , God provides . she uses her feet to bath her babies as well, cooks and writes with it.

She's an inspiration for us not to look at what we don't have, but to look at what we do have and see what we can accomplish with what God has given us.
