Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC)

Leandra Ferreria

Hi my name is Leandra Ferreira and I am from South Africa. I was born with AMC and as it goes, the doctors told my mom I would not survive past my first year and if I did, I would have to live in a special needs home. Lol- the joke was on them! My mom, being a strong independent woman, raised me just to be as strong as she was. I have been working the past 10 years and it has been great. My fellow colleagues treat me equally and don't see my disability. I have a son who is awesome and I love him dearly. There's a lot of challenges, but I take things each day at a time.
