Ola

my daily life

Hi everyone! My name is Ola and I'm a 20 year old paraplegic from Poland. 6.12.2015 was the day when I lost my health and one of the most important people in my life, my mom. I was 18 years old and I thought that my life ended, but now I know that it wasn't true. Now I know that wheelchairs aren't punishment but chance. After the accident, I passed my final exams, I  got a driving license, and I'm happy now. I know that I won't be walking again, but so what? I met fantastic people who I know I can always count on, my family and friends are with me too.  I have normal life.

As Charlie Chaplin said 'Life is a beautiful, magnificent thing, even to a jellyfish. … The trouble is you won't fight. You've given up. But there's something just as inevitable as death. And that's life. Think of the power of the universe — turning the Earth, growing the trees. That's the same power within you — if you'll only have the courage and the will to use it." 

SO PEOPLE HAVE FAITH AND FIGHT!

EMPOWER OTHERS!
