My name is Thais, I am 19 years old. I live in Brazil and I was born on October 7, 1992, 7 months premature. So on the day of my birth, I lost oxygen to my brain and this is why I can not walk alone. I read your book “Life Without Limits” and I was very moved by your story. You have become a true example to me. Last year I graduated from the third year of high school and it was the moment that I most felt excluded and almost went into depression and I cried constantly. However, I have seen all you’ve been through and how you still enjoy life with a beautiful smile on your face reflected in all you do. Even though you don’t have arms and legs, you can make jokes and still laugh (which I can not do ) This impressed me a lot and you became my hero. As you travel the world giving lectures, I wanted to ask you to come here to my country because after I learned of your story I really wanted to meet you and hug you tight.
