No Arms No Legs No Worries
Nick Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1982. His mother attended
nursing school at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne while his
father worked in business management. Nick was born without fully formed arms and legs.
According to his autobiography, his mother refused to see him or hold him while the nurse held him in front of her, but she and her husband eventually accepted their son's condition and understood it as God's plan for their son.
Nick has two small and deformed feet, one of which he calls his "chicken drumstick" because of its shape. He has been able to use his foot to operate an electric wheelchair, a
computer and a mobile phone. Nick thrived in his teenage and young adult years despite being
bullied. After his mother showed him a newspaper article about a man
dealing with a severe disability when he was seventeen, he started to
give motivational presentations. He graduated from Griffith University at the age of 21 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Today, Nick is an author and international motivational speaker who helps people overcome adversity.
