Fernanda: The Amputee Skater

Amputee

Fernanda Venancio

How Being An Amputee Is My Strength

I amputated my leg when I was 15 years old because of a disease called Lymphangioma. I chose the amputation, and I do not regret it because now I am free. I can fly without wings, and I choose to be an artistic skater. I love skating, and I decided to turn my weakness into my strength. I believe that the war is in our minds, and that it is each person's choice to move forward and to overcome barriers every day. I am an amputee skater, and I want to be a great one. I do not care about negative words or views of me because I believe that the impossible is just a matter of point of view.
