Nick Vujicic to tell his story
    2017-September-1  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Motivational speaker Nick Vujicic, who was born without legs and arms, will give a speech on his life.

Vujicic was born in 1982 with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of arms and legs. He is one of the seven known surviving individuals planet-wide who live with the syndrome.

He can use his foot to operate an electric wheelchair, a computer and a mobile phone.

Vujicic graduated from Griffith University with a bachelor of commerce degree, with a double major in accountancy and financial planning.

He started his speaking engagements at 19. In 2005, he founded Life Without Limbs, an international nonprofit organization. In 2007, he founded Attitude Is Altitude, a secular motivational speaking company. He starred in the short film “The Butterfly Circus.” At the 2010 Method Fest Independent Film Festival, he was awarded Best Actor in a Short Film for his starring performance as Will.

His first book, “Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life,” was published by Random House in 2010 and has been translated into more than 30 languages.

He recorded a motivational DVD, “Life’s Greater Purpose,” a short documentary filmed in 2005. He also recorded another DVD for young people titled “No Arms, No Legs, No Worries!”
