Most of us probably are pretty familiar with life’s struggles, what with having to work every day, deal with traffic jam, then monthly salary not enough to pay expenses… the list goes on and on and on. It’s almost like you can’t catch a break right?
But what we often take for granted are our healthy bodies, complete with perfectly functioning arms, legs, and all our senses intact. We are able to do regular things without trouble, and can lead normal lives without much assistance needed.
For those unfortunate enough to be born without certain limbs, even doing simple tasks can be an uphill battle. But as the old saying goes, where there’s a will, there’s a way, and this young woman in Perak is a shining example of that saying.
The story, which was posted to social media recently, shows how a young woman living in Batu Gajah, Perak, overcomes the difficulties that she faces with not having arms or hands in her daily life. The video starts off by showing how she manages to drive an automatic car by just using her feet!
Seemingly doing so without any problems at all, the woman turns the steering wheel with one foot, while the other foot is used to operate the gas and brake pedals. She even manages to reverse her car from a parking spot leh! Damn power!
The young woman goes on to say that despite the initial fear of trying to learn how to drive without arms or hands, her sheer will and determination led her to give it a go.
“People say that it was with my sheer will to learn how to drive that helped me master driving with only my feet in 2 weeks. I believe it, because I don’t think I would be able to drive like normal people if I wasn’t determined.”
The young woman then goes on to demonstrate how she writes by using her toes, and her writing is even neater than ours wei! She makes it look super effortless too!
Asides from writing with her feet, she then goes on to show how she puts on her tudung without any need for help, and how she gets her bag up onto her shoulder by just lifting it up over her shoulder.
Netizens who saw the video commended the young woman for her will to lead a normal life, despite her disabilities, and praised her for being able to achieve so much. They also respected the fact that she was willing to put in the effort to learn how to cope with her disabilities.
We have to say that this young woman’s story has us all in the office feeling inspired enough to tackle the Monday blues head on. What about you? We wish her all the best with her endeavours ahead, and hope she never looses her incredible spirit of perseverance!
