Life is a series of challenges, and the resilience to overcome them defines what we get from this beautiful gift of life.
But to some people, the challenges of life are even more rough, especially when they are disadvantaged in one way or the other.
Meet Neon Zima.
Emmanuel, seven-year-old father of two, who is navigating The Impossible parts of life with courage and determination, despite his lifelong disability, laughs.
It was like this when he was born.
His arms were disabled and thus unable to function properly.
It was until he was seven years old when he firstly realized that his arms were different from others and that his disability will have a profound effect on his whole life.
I realized how disadvantageous it is.
When I was about seven years old, I was struggling to hold my pen at school and my teacher would come over to me to help me out.
So many things were very challenging to me, but I always aspire to do everything which is possibly and done by normal people.
When I tried to do something- and it worked out very well- it encouraged me to keep doing things and learning various crucial lessons to the point.
People could not differentiate me from me and other normal people.
As he was growing up, Emmanuel wanted to do everything in his power to be able to learn to swim, even though he didn’t have normal arms.
Many people discouraged him, saying that there’s no way he can be good at swimming.
Yet his arms are disabled.
But he refused to get down and his dream was finally fulfilled: Academy, Community Academy.
But everything was not shining in Emmanuel’s life.
Firstly, he dropped out of school as his financial means dwindled, and that would have a profound impact on him.
He resorted to technical education and he learned everything about Hair Care, both for men and women, and he got a high level certificate as one of the best students in his class foreign.
However, the painful reality of his disability let him hurt again, as he failed to get any tangible job, yet he didn’t have the capital to start his own health alone.
As a result, he got depressed and cast the day he was born with his disability, um engineer ing foreign.
But many women avoided him because of his disability.
That changed when he finally met this beautiful woman here.
Akumo, no alias.
I was rejected by many women before I met my wife.
Some say that they can never get engaged with a disabled man who will not be productive at all.
I tried multiple women and they all told me the same thing: that I will not be their partner with my disability.
That’s when I realized how a big deal it was.
I was almost discouraged when I met my wife.
I love her so much because she loved me unconditionally.
She loved me the way I am, without discrimination.
When I noticed that her intentions were pure, I took advantage of it.
Then we started to get along and we finally got married.
It was an opportunity not to be missed and I completely took advantage of it.
On her side, Alice didn’t care about Emmanuel’s disability, but his character, warm heart and loyalty.
She was warned about the consequences of marrying Emmanuel, who would struggle to take care of her, but she ignored others discouraging comments.
