My one meter high world: Living with Dwarfism

Rare Disease & Syndrome

Francesca Moscardo

One meter high world

My name is Francesca Moscardo and I live in Verona, Italy. I am 31 years old and I suffer from Diastrophic Dysplasia, a form of dwarfism that makes me only 98 cm tall! I have scoliosis, I can walk, but on long distances I use a wheelchair: despite this, in my life I have always done everything like other people, because my family and friends have always believed in my abilities. I studied Art History, now I work as a copywriter and I have a blog (nanabiancablog.wordpress.com), in which I tell my "one meter high world". To be very short is a daily challenge for me, but limits can be exceeded if we look at them from a different perspective! Until a few years ago, I was convinced I could not drive a car. In 2015 I got my drivers license and now I travel in my adapted car. Nobody stops me anymore!
