If you dream...you can do everything

Amputee

Derya Soric

Now, I love myself and my body.

Hi, I'm Derya. I'm 26 years old. I was born with a spinal disease (meningomyelocele.) My right foot was amputated when I was 19, and when I was 25 I lost my left leg because of meningomyelocele. In the past 20 years, it was was hard and tiring. I struggled a lot, but I know I needed to be strong. When I had to give up a part of my body, I made a promise to myself not to regret anything and I accepted my amputee legs, and began to realize my dreams. My family played a big part of my story with their patience and support. Now, I love myself and my body. I dance and do sports! My advice to you- People may think that you can't do anything, but if you dream...you can do everything
