Nick Vujicic was born with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. As a child, he struggled mentally and emotionally, in addition to his physical impairments. He remembers wanting to commit suicide as early as the age of 8, and he would cry every night, complaining to God about his limitations.
But one day, everything changed. He realized that he could look at life totally differently, and started being grateful for what he did have and could use. By the time he was seventeen, he had started his own non-profit organization, Life Without Limbs.
Nick presents motivational speeches worldwide, on life with a disability, hope and finding meaning in life. But perhaps his greatest story is that of his new love, Kanae. We will let this heartwarming video tell you the rest:
