Nick Vujicic: The Iron Man with no limbs

Nick Vujicic (born December 4, 1982) is a preacher, a motivational speaker and the director of Life Without Limbs, an organization for the physically disabled. He regularly gives speeches across subject of disability and hope.

He was born in Melbourne, Australia with the rare Tetra-amelia disorder: limbless,
missing both arms at shoulder level, and legless but with two small feet, one of which has two toes protruding from his left thigh. Initially, his parents were devastated. Vujicic was otherwise healthy. Despite the absence of limbs, he is doing surf and swimming, and playing golf and soccer.

"If I fail a hundred times, if I fail and I give up, do you think that i'm never gonna get up? NO. But, if i fail and try again, and again, and again... What I just want you to know
is that it's not the end. What matter is how you're gonna finish? Are you gonna finish strong?
...And you will find that strength to get back up."
- Nick Vujicic

The teen mastered life’s daily tasks and went on to show that he can do everything that able bodied people can do-including writing, typing, play drums, brush his teeth.

Aged 17 he began giving talks at a church group and went on to found a non-profit to use his experience to help others.

In 2005 Vujicic was nominated for the ‘Young Australian of the Year’ Award.

On Nick’s Facebook page, congratulatory remarks poured in from fans from around the world. Nick, 29, has addressed over three million people in 25 countries.
